We have many patients who suffer from tooth sensitivity to hot and cold. There are over-the counter- products that are very effective in minimizing tooth sensitivity. Sensitivity protection toothpastes or desensitizing toothpastes contain ingredients that help block the transmission of discomfort from the surface of the tooth to the nerve. Over time these ingredients can build-up in the tubules of our teeth and give you even more relief. These products do not work immediately, and need to not be interchanged with other toothpastes. The products we recommend for sensitivity are Sensodyne products such as Pronamel and Repair and Protect and the Colgate Sensitivity toothpastes.
