Our Science

Technologies for Sensitivity Protection 

Our scientists have identified and formulated a number of specific technologies for inclusion in the Sensodyne range - for example - potassium nitrate and NovaMin™  - to help with sensitivity protection. These technologies work to either soothe the nerves inside sensitive teeth, or to shield and protect the exposed dentine.
