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.


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
