3 Best Toothpastes for Sensitive Teeth

If you experience pain when drinking hot coffee or enjoying a cool ice cream treat, you may suffer from tooth sensitivity. There are a number of causes for sensitive teeth, including cavities, worn down tooth enamel, or exposed tooth roots. Whatever the cause, having tooth sensitivity can be extremely uncomfortable and painful while trying to enjoy your favorite foods. Luckily, there are a number of toothpastes available that can help alleviate some of the pain. Here’s our picks for the top 3!


Colgate PreviDent 5000 Sensitive Formula

This toothpaste includes 1.1% sodium fluoride, which helps to strengthen tooth enamel, and 5% potassium nitrate, which helps aid in tooth sensitivity. Potassium nitrate helps to decrease the level of nerve activity in your teeth, and helps to prevent and reduce those pesky pain signals from reaching your brain.


The Natural Family Co. Sensitive Natural Toothpaste

This all-natural toothpaste is made with 70% organic ingredients and is free of fluoride, SLS, parabens, and harsh chemicals. It’s perfect if you’re looking for a natural alternative for sensitivity toothpaste. It still includes potassium nitrate for reducing sensitivity, and contains 25% xylitol, a naturally occurring alcohol found in fruits and vegetables. 25% xylitol is among the highest you can find on the shelf, making this a great natural alternative to other toothpastes.


nHAp Fluoride-Free Toothpaste

nHAp stands for nano-hydroxyapatite, which helps to naturally repair and restore damaged tooth enamel. This lab-made mineral mimics the natural enamel your teeth already have and helps to protect them. This toothpaste also helps to whiten your teeth, prevents future stains from occurring (like from your coffee or wine), and is a fluoride free formula. It also contains xylitol, which helps aid in cavity prevention.
