Vulnerable areas of exposed dentin are a cause of sensitive teeth. Dentin hypersensitivity, or tooth sensitivity, is a common dental problem. It's a condition that can develop over time, as a result of common problems such as receding gums and enamel wear. Most sufferers are between 20 and 50 years old.
With twice daily brushing, Sensodyne Fresh Impact sensitivity toothpaste works deep inside the tooth to soothe painful sensitivity and helps to keep the pain from coming back. It is a combination of paste and gel that helps your breath feel fresh.
Here are some of the more common triggers for tooth sensitivity: Eating cold food or drinking cold drinks, eating hot food or drinking hot drinks, eating sugary or sour foods, breathing in cold air, brushing teeth.
