Learn How to Manage Sensitive Teeth

If your teeth are sensitive, there are several simple but important steps you can take today to treat sensitive teeth. Practice good oral hygiene, including proper brushing and flossing, to prevent conditions such as periodontal disease, which can cause receding gums.

Ongoing Oral Care For Sensitive Teeth
  • Use a toothpaste specially formulated to treat sensitive teeth.
  • Don't brush too hard
  • Use a softer toothbrush, preferably one suitable for people with sensitive teeth.
  • Avoid having excess acidic foods that can wear away tooth enamel, such as fruit juices and soft drinks.
  • Avoid grinding your teeth or clenching during the day. Ask your dentist about a mouth guard for nighttime use.

Consult your dentist regularly and follow advice and recommendation to treat sensitive teeth.

Potassium Nitrate

To protect against tooth sensitivity every time you eat and every time your drink, you need all day sensitivity protection.

Sensodyne® toothpaste provides all day, every day sensitivity protection when used twice daily.

The potassium ion in Sensodyne® toothpaste builds a protective barrier and prevents transmission of nerve impulse to brain which results in relief from sensitivity.
