Post Sensitive Teeth

Has anyone found a toothpaste for sensitive teeth that actually works? I've tried several so far, with no luck. The worst is the nerve pain that I get in my molars mostly, but also in other teeth. This is really getting me upset. I also grind and wear a mouthguard at to bed. I've been to 2 Dentists recently and neither one of them can find anything wrong. Thanks.

Hi! I have extremely sensitive teeth due to years of hard and excessive brushing. My dentist recommended Sensodyne, but I opted for Aqua Fresh Sensitive. I can't believe the difference it made!! However, last time I went to the dentist, I had 3 new cavities ! I used to always know from the pain when I had a cavity, but after using the toothpaste, I never felt a thing! Oh well. http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

Hi. Thanks for replying. I saw the dentist today and he prescribed a stannous flouride gel that you apply with a toothbrush after brushing and flossing. You don't rinse it off. I tried it after lunch and I'll use it again tonight. I hope it works b/c I'm tired of the pain. I'm sorry you got cavities while using the Aquafresh. Do you get nerve pains in your teeth too?

Not sure exactly what you mean by "nerve pains", but yes, before I started using the AquaFresh my teeth were extremely sensitive to just about anything, including brushing, hot or cold beverages, cavities, etc. The only pains I have now are related to an amalgam filling I got 8 months ago. I STILL cannot let anything cold touch it. What a pain in the butt!

I have had success with Sensodyne toothpaste. When I try some other brand the sensitivity comes back.

The Aqua fresh is what works for me, as well.

I suppose this would be fairly obvious to most, but it took awhile for me to catch on to the fact that iced tea makes my teeth veeerrry sensitive. It's not the tea, actually, but the fact that I like it very lemony. But after laying off of it for a few days I can go back to it again.

I think this is hereditary; my mom had it, too. Six years ago I ate a piece of candy and rushed to the sink in great pain! I told her; she said to buy Sensodyne. You use it twice daily. In a few days no more pain.
I think, but am not sure, that the PINK AND WHITE
box of it is the strongest and it's getting harder to find. Aster
