Best toothpaste for sensitive teeth – 5 options to help create a barrier & soothe

Published by Finn Hayden

If you've ever experienced sensitive teeth pain then you'll know it's no joke, so we should all be trying our best to minimise the chances of experiencing this type of pain. Luckily, regularly using a toothpaste designed to help with sensitivity can really help to make a noticeable difference. We wanted to round up the best toothpaste for sensitive teeth that you can buy, let's get into it:

Arm & Hammer Sensitive Pro

The team at Arm & Hammer claims that Sensitive Pro is the only toothpaste for sensitive teeth that actually fixes the causes of sensitivity, and although we don't think that's quite true (this guide is full of others), we do think that this toothpaste from Arm & Hammer is excellent. The toothpaste contains liquid calcium, which actually helps to repair enamel, seal your teeth, and protect exposed nerves. This toothpaste has been proven in clinical trials to provide relief from sensitivity pain for up to 16 weeks. The baking soda in the toothpaste helps to clean and whiten your teeth too, which is an added bonus. Learn more and buy it here -

Colgate Sensitive Instant Relief

Putting the term "instant" into any product name is a bold move, but Colgate can back this claim up - the Sensitive Instant Relief toothpaste from the brand does work pretty instantly to start tackling the pain caused by sensitive teeth. But as well as this, the toothpaste actually helps to heal the cause of sensitive teeth. The toothpaste contains calcium, which helps to restore your enamel and repair nerve damage. If you want instant relief then it is recommend that you actually put a small amount of the toothpaste onto your finger tip and apply it to your teeth directly, but for the lasting effects, it is recommended to brush using this toothpaste.

Ecodenta Sensitivity Relief

We've already included toothpaste from the Ecodenta range in our natural toothpaste guide, but the brand is also worthy of a place in this guide. The Sensitivity Relief toothpaste from Ecodenta is made with chamomile and clove extracts, 2 natural ingredients which have been shown to inhibit sensitivity. The toothpaste also contains Kalident, an ingredient which contains calcium. The calcium helps to repair and strengthen enamel. Learn more and buy it here -

Sensodyne Sensitivity & Gum

Sensodyne is probably the biggest brand in the toothpaste for sensitive teeth space, and we're not too surprised by this - the products from the brand are excellent. The Sensitivity & Gum toothpaste from Sensodyne is especially good because it has a dual-action formula - not only does it help to build a protective layer of your teeth to help with sensitivity, but it also kills off bacteria which can cause gum issues (and sensitive teeth). We were also very impressed to see that this toothpaste has a 4.5 out of 5 rating on the Boots website from more than 250 reviews. Learn more and buy it here -

Oral-B Original Gum & Enamel Repair Toothpaste

According to the Oral-B website, the Oral-B Gum & Enamel Pro- Repair toothpaste can help to repair enamel in just 2 weeks. This is really impressive and important for people suffering from sensitive teeth, as damaged enamel is one of the main causes of the pain. Not only does this toothpaste help to repair the enamel, but with regular use, it can also help to protect against acid erosion. Learn more and buy it here -
