Sensitive teeth are pretty big business! In fact, desensitizing toothpaste brands top the oral care market above all other options when it comes to demand. This hasn’t always been the case though. The past twenty to thirty years have seen a steady uptick in the consumer’s desire and need for sensitivity relief. But Why?
Is it something we’re doing that is making our teeth more sensitive, or are we able to address oral care issues faster because we have greater access to care and treatment today? I think it’s both personally. We are steadily consuming more and more in our lives that have a potential impact on our oral health. From too much sugar to too much alcohol to too much stress…all of these factors can have negative effects on our bodies. Sensitive teeth are just one of those side effects.
When it comes down to it, I love a good toothpaste for sensitive teeth and I recommend them often when needed. Sometimes an over-the-counter brand works wonderfully for a patient and other times a prescription paste is needed. Overall the best toothpaste for sensitive teeth is the one that works for a particular person. Even though they are all similar, each one has different chemical formulas that work to control sensitivity. Sodium fluoride and potassium nitrate are two commonly used active ingredients.
How does sensitive toothpaste work?
Treating the root cause of sensitivity!
It’s probably worth considering if one of the following is needed for treating sensitive teeth, especially if it’s not sensitivity that is felt all over the mouth and teeth and it is a more localized or patterned expression of pain and discomfort.
