How Sensodyne Rapid Works in Stages

The Science Behind Sensodyne Rapid Relief


Here at Sensodyne, it is our job to study the causes of tooth sensitivity to really understand how to relieve it. Sensitivity can occur when the softer, inner part of the tooth called ‘dentine’ becomes exposed, revealing small holes called tubules. When you eat something, such as a cold, hot, sweet or sour food, signals rush down these tubules, triggering the nerve inside your tooth. This can result in the instant, short, sharp pain of tooth sensitivity.

As many as 1 in 3 people suffer from sensitive teeth, but only 1 in 3 sensitivity sufferers treat it. What’s more, sufferers say sensitivity takes the pleasure out of eating and drinking, and many may also go to great lengths to create work-arounds for the pain. These may include: avoiding certain types of food or drink, eating or drinking on one side of their mouth, covering their teeth with their tongue, changing their brushing technique, and wearing a scarf over their mouth in cold weather.

There are simple solutions for sensitivity pain, such as Sensodyne Rapid Relief, a toothpaste that provides clinically proven relief in just 60 seconds* to relieve sensitivity pain fast.
