Have you spoke to your Dentist about this? If not then ask the Dentist what they recommend, I would have recommended Sensodyne but I guess you would have already tried that Hugs to you

Have you ever tried Sensodyne toothpaste? It's supposed to lessen the effects of your problem. If it is really bad, you might want to see a dentist so he/she can check for possible other problems, a cavity or a gum problem. But more than likely, Sensodyne will take care of it.

Grrr to you dentist. Can you see another one? Preferably a caring one. Hugs to you. You probably have mild receded gums and the exposed roots are giving you pain. The information in the links may help you. Good Luck. http://www.nzda.org.nz/public/sensitive.htm http://www.ada.org/public/topics/sensitive.asp http://filipinodentist.com/consumer/toothbrushing.htm http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/2999806.stm

I do not have this problem, but my son does. He could not use the sensitive toothpaste either. So I always had him brush with warm water and baking soda. Get the toothbrush wet with the warm and pinch some baking soda and place on wet toothbrush. It will form a paste, nothing there to hurt your teeth and it will clean them real good for you.

Over the last few months I have suffered real bad with sensitive teeth on the top side of the left of my mouth, I have tried sensodyne but it doesn't work for me, everytime I eat something cold I have to eat on the right side because it is very painful and the pain shoots through the nerves, I did go to my dentist and he gave me a filling, however it hasn't done the trick and my teeth are still sensitive! It's the first time I've suffered with sensitive teeth in 35 years, grrrr

There *are* toothpastes for sensitive teeth. The next time you go to the mart, do study the label more closely. They would usually have "sensitive" or a form of the form on the box. I do know the big names all have such toothpastes.
