Rub onto sore teeth or gums
I bought this as I was experiencing settling in pain after a crown and root canal was performed on a front side tooth. I would rub this onto the surrounding gum area and it did relieve the discomfort.
I'm glad I had this in my cupboard this morning. Today I woke up today at 5:00am from aching teeth sensitivity pain due to the take home teeth whitening kit from the dentist. I applied their "soothing" gel twice, it didn't work, so I rinsed it off. I rubbed Colgate tooth paste onto my lower front teeth and gum and placed the teeth tray over. It...gave me temporary relief for I'd say thirty minutes while I ransacked my flat looking for strong pain killers from previous dental work. I know Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief is not meant for this kind of dental pain yet it did help. Well it's been a few hours and I drank tea not realising it would trigger sensitivity pain. I thought I may have to reach for pain killers but I gave Colgate a go again. Once again, I rubbed it on my lower front teeth covering with the custom teeth tray. That was forty minutes ago and it is dulling the pain. Happy days are here again!

I have been using Colgate Sensitive Pro-relief for three months for sensitivity in my front teeth, but a month ago my gums started aching and I had a gnawing pain on one side. I also had constantly dry mouth and lips and went through numerous lip balms to combat this. I persevered not thinking it was my Toothpaste, until I bought Oral B because it was half the price. Low and behold within 2 days of changing toothpaste, my gums stopped aching and my mouth wasn't dry and sore any more. Colgate Sensitive is OK for a day or two, but not continuously, the side effects are horrendous.
If i could give a negative i would
I was recommended to use this by my dentist, my teeth have never been sensitive. I started using it and OMG after day three, i couldn't eat, drink anything hot or cold, my teeth were over the top sensitive. I have now stopped using it and it has been 2 days and i am now able to stand hot and cold foods. I take an anti inflammatory just to calm my teeth but this product is utter crap. Do not waste your money.
It does not provide relief for sensitive teeth -false advertising
No side effects, apart from money not well spent. This toothpaste really does not help at all with symptoms of sensitive teeth. it is in a rubbish bin now. Plain bi-carb soda and coconut butter do a far better job at cleaning and desensitising.
Mouth Peeling after using colgate sensitive pro-relief whitening for 2 days
After using colgate sensitive pro-relief whitening for 2 days my whole mouth went numb and all my gums and tongue started to peel. where every you get this toothpaste in your mouth or on your lip it goes tingly.
I've been using another colgate sensitive whitening toothpaste for the last 10 years but thought i would try this new toothpaste but it was the worst move.
How do I get rid of this bad aftertaste??
This must have been my worst toothpaste experience ever. The toothpaste leaves a very bad, sour-like aftertaste that you can't get rid off. I've once accidentally drunk out of a glass with smoke buds in it which was horrible, but I'd probably still prefer it over using this toothpaste ever again.
I'm not sure what causes it but my lips and tongue goes numb when I use this toothpaste. It's kind of like a tingling first then numbing
The taste isn't pleasant either and it makes me salivate heaps. I don't recommend it.

Not yet sure about the product BUT give a miss to the Twist Cap and Flat Container.
Title says it all. Please let me know when I can take my second box back to the retailer for my money back. What can I say to use up 7 words.
Painful burning tongue... numb gums. What changed in this Product? No Warnings.. No Notice on Packaging
I had used this product with no side effects for more than 10 years. Starting in December I started to notice changes to my mouth. I had dental work done in December and thought it was a reaction.. that would ease. No... my mouth continued to get worse. My gums numbed.. my tongue burned... all food tasted like metal. I worked on eliminated everything that I changed... only a week ago... did I twig.. to my toothpaste... the same as the past 10 years... I didn't change ... it did... but i have no idea what changed. After being on vacat...ion for 8 days... i realized that I used a different toothpaste than Colgate... during this time my mouth stopped burning... and i began to feel better.... but of course once i returned home... i started reusing my normal toothpaste... Now after 5 days...my mouth feels like it has been through a cheese grater... but the burning has stopped and my numb gums are beginning to feel something again. I will never use Colgate products again. I have alerted my dentist... and it became apparent that other patients were suffering from similar effects. But as we are NOT new users it took a lot of work to isolate the issue.

Colgate Pro Relief made my tongue sting was so bad it was waking me in the night
I have always used colgate toothpaste but this product really should carry a health warning. I've been using it for 10 weeks after having a sensitive tooth following dental treatment. After a further dental treatment my tongue starting stinging to the point it was so sore it would wake me during the night. I thought it was an allergy from dental materials and told my dentist that I might need the very expensive work he did on a bridge removed if my mouth didn't improve, never once suspecting it was the colgate sensitive pro relief toothpaste...causing all the stinging in my tongue. I'd switched to it from Sensodyne as it was cheaper and read somewhere it was more effective. My mouth feels like I've been sucking on a hot poker, will never use again! Colgate really ought to put a warning on it that it could affect some people adversely.

My dentist recommended this toothpaste and initially it really worked for my sensitive teeth, however, after a few weeks I was suffering with a really dry mouth and ultra sensitive teeth, because this toothpaste was recommended by a dentist I did not think for one second it was the problem and continued to use the product until my gums were that sore I was convinced I was losing my teeth to gum disease, I also had several painful mouth ulcers and it was only at that point I thought it could be the toothpaste. After two days of not using the pr...oduct I still have a sore mouth but it is definitely improving and the toothpaste was definitely the culprit, the mouth dryness has stopped. The only use for this toothpaste is using it as a wood/plaster filler around the house!
Sore bleeding gums
Just after two days of using this toothpaste my gums are bleeding and very sore! Im in so much pain now I had to take Panadol.
Btw the blue tube pro - relief has better ingredients than the green one. The green tube has more nasties and this is the troubled one. I should check the ingredients before I purchased it.
The twist cap is crap
I have attempted 3 times to lodge this complaint with Colgate the online using the "Contact Us" form (it coventley does not work).
The twist cap is crap. When I brush my teeth in the shower I find it nearly impossible to twist the cap off and on again with wet hands, I have to get out of the shower (wet) and then use a (dry) towel in order to get a decent grip to twist open the cap and then have to leave it off until I finish having a shower in order to twist it back on.
Just to make sure it wasn't just me I asked my wife who had dry hands t...
Now my whole mouth hurts
I had been using another toothpaste but my husband wanted to save money. I tried this toothpaste. The first few days my mouth was like cotton, so dry. Then my whole mouth felt raw and would burn especially when eating or drinking. I thought it had to be something else. Then I got little blisters on my inner lips and cheek. Its not worth the pain to save a few dollars.
Made my teeth super sensitive and painful!!
I usually use Sensodyne as I have sensitive teeth. I decided to give this Colgate sensitive pro brand a go as it was cheaper and found after less than a week of using it, my teeth became overly sensitive not just to cold things or food but sensitive and throbbing pain 24/7. nothing relieved the pain until I switched back to Sensodyne. Was such an awful experience and took a while for the pin to go away.

It made my teeth super sensitive
Yes.. my teeth became much more sensitive when both brushing and rinsing. It gave no 'sensitive pro relief' at all. It was actually the complete opposite. The reason I bought this product was because I have sensitive teeth and they sometimes become super sensitive when I brush them, eat sugary foods, cold drinks etc. I found no relief whilst using this product. Sorry
