Sensodyne for Tooth Sensitivity


Sensodyne Toothpaste

Tooth sensitivity is a very common symptom among dental patients. Enamel erosion is caused by acidic beverages and foods. Heavy brushing and tooth grinding can also damage tooth structure and contribute to sensitivity. Sensodyne toothpaste contains potassium nitrate, a salt which has been proven to block dental rods and decrease sensitivity. Other ways to fight tooth sensitivity include:

  • Brushing in round gentle motions with a soft bristled toothbrush.
  • Rinsing with water after consuming acidic beverages.  
  • Wearing a nightguard if you have been diagnosed with bruxism or tooth grinding. 

Be sure to discuss tooth sensitivity with your dentist to find the treatment that's best for you.
