How to Treat Sensitive Teeth
Whether you’ve toughed it out or made small changes, like chewing on 1 side of your mouth, you may have figured out how to deal with your sensitive teeth.
Switching to a daily sensitivity toothpaste, like Sensodyne, is an easy way to enjoy the foods and drinks you love without thinking twice.
All Sensodyne toothpastes contain fluoride to maintain healthy teeth and also provide cavity protection.

How Sensodyne Can Help
Which Sensodyne Toothpaste Is Right for You?
Whether you’re looking for whitening, repairing sensitive areas of your teeth,* fast relief in 3 days,* or extra fresh breath,* Sensodyne offers a wide range of products that all provide relief for sensitive teeth.
Daily Care for Sensitive Teeth
Treating your sensitive teeth on a daily basis is important because tooth sensitivity won’t go away without it. Once tooth enamel, the protective layer of your tooth, is worn away, it cannot grow back, leaving exposed nerves vulnerable to triggers, causing sensitivity.
TIPS TO HELP PROTECT YOUR TEETH
Start using Sensodyne
Brush 2x a day, every day, for continued relief.
Try a soft-bristled or electric toothbrush
They are gentler on the sensitive areas of your teeth.
Wear a mouth guard
Teeth grinding can cause enamel wear and lead to sensitivity. **
Balance an acidic diet
Pair acidic foods with less acidic options to help prevent enamel erosion.
Visit your dentist
Schedule a checkup every 6 months.
**Sensodyne toothpastes may not help with sensitivity caused by teeth grinding
