Sensodyne – In-Depth Patient Understanding

  • The cycle of dentin hypersensitivity

    Dentin hypersensitivity recurrence cycle and management goals

    Break the cycle of dentin hypersensitivity and provide long-term protection

    Goals for effective management of dentin hypersensitivity:

    • Provide relief from dentin hypersensitivity
    • Provide long-lasting protection from dentin hypersensitivity with continued twice-daily use of a sensitivity toothpaste
    • Improve quality of life for patients with dentin hypersensitivity

    Sufferers often switch back to their regular daily toothpaste when sensitivity is relieved.7 This can result in pain returning.

    For lasting relief from sensitivity, recommend continued twice daily use of a sensitivity toothpaste.

Nerve soothed by potassium ions, stannous fluoride and Novamin

Sensodyne toothpastes are specially formulated for clinically proven relief from dentin hypersensitivity2-4

Stannous fluoride formulations:

Sensodyne with stannous fluoride, has proven efficacy in relieving sensitivity through tubule occlusion.*3 Stannous fluoride creates a barrier over exposed dentin that blocks painful stimuli from reaching vulnerable nerves.10

NOVAMIN® formulations

Formulations with NOVAMIN form a protective layer over exposed dentin for lasting protection from dentin hypersensitivity*11,12

Potassium nitrate formulations:

Formulations with potassium nitrate build soothing protection by desensitising the nerve inside the tooth.*2
