How to Care for Sensitive Teeth

If you have made small changes, like chewing on 1 side of your mouth, you may think you have sensitive teeth.

Switching to a daily sensitivity protection toothpaste, like Sensodyne, is an easy way to enjoy the foods and drinks you love without thinking twice.

Sensodyne toothpastes contain fluoride to maintain healthy teeth and provide cavity protection.

Daily Care for Sensitive Teeth

Brushing your teeth twice a day with a desensitizing toothpaste is important to help keep tooth sensitivity away. If you stop using specialist sensitivity toothpaste, sensitivity may return.


Start using Sensodyne

Brush 2x a day, every day, for continued protection.

Try a soft-bristled toothbrush

They are gentler on the sensitive areas of your teeth.

Avoid frequent and overly acidic diets

Such as carbonated drinks or tangy juices.

Visit your dentist

Schedule a checkup as often as your dentist recommends.
