Which Toothbrush & Toothpaste Are Best for Sensitive Teeth?

An electric and a manual toothbrush.

Does sipping from a drink full of ice cubes cause your teeth to tingle in an uncomfortable way? Does the thought of biting into a cold scoop of ice cream send shivers down your body? If so, it’s possible that you have sensitive teeth.

The Best Toothbrush for Sensitive Teeth

For starters, you’re going to want a toothbrush with soft bristles. Whether or not you have sensitive teeth, that’s the way to avoid damaging your teeth and gums. If you use an electric toothbrush, then you can even find specific toothbrush heads designed for sensitive teeth.

The Best Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth

Many toothpastes are packaged and branded in such a way that it shows they’re meant for sensitive teeth. These work by helping to strengthen the enamel, which offers protection around the inner, sensitive part of your teeth. Some may also block the nerves in your teeth from sending pain signals. Sensodyne has long been an industry favorite in terms of toothpaste for sensitive teeth. Other popular options would be Colgate Sensitive, Tom’s of Maine Rapid Relief Sensitive, and ARM & HAMMER Sensitive Teeth & Gums.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are extremely competent, friendly and professional. He is very thorough and explains everything very clearly. Finally I feel like I am in good hands when it comes to dental care.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.

Very confident after leaving the office that my teeth are in greatttt hands. Above and beyond patient care. Very informative visits. A sense that they genuinely care about patient concerns. Added helpful guidelines I took home with me to reach dental hygiene goals before my next visits. Highly recommended you leave your old scary dentist ! 😁😁
