Sensodyne Ingredients

< Back to the article list

Sensodyne is specifically made to help relieve and protect against sensitivity, offering 24/7 protection when you brush with it twice a day, every day.

What Is in Sensodyne?

Sensodyne toothpastes contain 1 of 2 ingredients: Potassium Nitrate or Stannous Fluoride.

All Sensodyne products contain fluoride, which helps fight against cavities, so you can maintain healthy teeth every day.

Potassium Nitrate Helps Soothe Sensitivity Pain

Sensodyne toothpastes with potassium nitrate soothe the nerves inside your teeth, preventing them from sending pain signals from triggers, like a burst of cold air or hot coffee.

Sensodyne Essential Care toothpastes (aside from Sensodyne Deep Clean) and Sensodyne True White toothpastes are SLS free.

Stannous Fluoride Builds a Protective Layer

Sensodyne toothpastes with stannous fluoride work like a shield to protect the exposed soft, inner part of the tooth called dentin. This shield helps prevent triggers, like a cold soda, sweets, or sour candy, from reaching the nerves inside the tooth and causing pain.
