What Causes Sensitive Teeth?
When tooth enamel wears away—typically over years or even decades—it exposes the soft, inner part of your tooth called dentin. This dentin houses thousands of microscopic channels that run toward the center of the tooth, where the nerves live.
Certain triggers, like popsicles or hot tea, can travel through these channels and stimulate the nerve, causing a short, sharp pain, also known as tooth sensitivity.
How Sensodyne Can Help
Sensodyne is specially formulated to relieve and protect against tooth sensitivity and is the #1 dentist recommended toothpaste brand for sensitive teeth.
It works by creating a barrier over sensitive areas or by soothing the nerves inside your tooth, ultimately offering 24/7 sensitivity protection when you brush with it twice a day, every day.
