Active Ingredients in Sensodyne Sensitivity & Gum

Dealing with tooth sensitivity pain, and/or experiencing bleeding gums is actually very common. In fact, globally, over 50% of people who suffer from tooth sensitivity also deal with gum problems. And almost half of them don’t treat either condition with a specialized toothpaste.

That’s why Sensodyne Sensitivity & Gum is formulated to relieve tooth sensitivity and improve gum health at the same time. And it’s active ingredient? Stannous fluoride.

What Is Stannous Fluoride?

Stannous fluoride is a chemical compound that targets both tooth sensitivity and gum health. It works like a shield by creating a barrier to protect the exposed, soft, inner part of the tooth called dentin. This shield helps prevent triggers, like cold drinks, sweets, or coffee, from reaching the nerves inside the tooth and causing pain.

It also helps target and remove plaque bacteria associated with gingivitis. And its antimicrobial activity helps improve gum health by preventing bacteria build up.
