Do You Suffer from Sensitive Teeth?

Do your teeth twinge when you eat or drink certain foods? Do you suffer from sensitive teeth? Is your sensitivity a daily problem or perhaps just an occasional discomfort? You could have dentine hypersensitivity, which causes sensitive teeth.

Dentine hypersensitivity is a common dental problem. It's not a disease, but rather a condition that can develop over time due to common factors such as receding gums, over-vigorous tooth brushing and tooth grinding. Most sufferers are between 20 and 50 years old1.

Whether your dentine hypersensitivity is chronic and painful or just an infrequent tooth twinge, Sensodyne toothpaste can help. Find answers to your questions on this website.
