It actually works (for me)

I have long been dubious about these products, so I checked out the ratings on Amazon to work out what to try. This came up and to my surprise it has worked really well. My coffee stained teeth are getting whiter each week and I have not had any of the problems others have noted. I have had a big problems with mouth ulcers in the past but not for a while. I also do a custom treatment with ginger, bicarb and peroxide once a week. Show details

Makes sensitivity worse

I am a dental therapist and have some gingival recession and exposed dentine on some teeth. I was given a tube of this paste at a dental conference and after using Colgate Total for years decided to swap to this as my sensitivity was causing trouble with eating and drinking.
This product made my teeth more sensitive and gave me terrible bad breath. When I smeared it onto my worst areas the pain was intense and took a few minutes to resolve.
I won't be recommending this tooth paste. Show details


I had been using Sensodyne products for years, but when the formula for the repair and protect toothpaste came out I began experiencing consistent pain on my tongue and underneath my tongue. In addition to peeling skin on my lips that resulted in sores and redness that lasted days until I discontinued use.
Other than that the toothpaste was good. If you are not sensitive to the new ingredients added, its a good choice. Show details

It reduced my sensitivity

I believe it didn't clean my teeth or gums well as I developed gingivitis and the bacteria made my gum and bone become inflammed...I'm sure it could have been dangerous if left. Show details

Something has changed

I have used this in the past with good desensitising results but something has seriously changed. I switched to another brand about 12 months ago as I felt Sensodyn was lacking in fluoride as my teeth were constantly feeling "furry"and and I felt a constant need to brush them. A few months ago I tried Sensodyne again but now my sensitivity has never been this bad. I even tried different varieties but I will have to bin all of these partially used tubes as my teeth are now so painful I cannot use this toothpaste another day. I hope the other brand can rescue my teeth as I am becoming desperate after this experience. I would hate to have to have them all pulled out as they are appear to be in good condition if they weren't so sensitive.  Show details

New formulation made my mouth sore

I used this toothpaste in the past and had no problems. Started using it again recently and the inside of my mouth has become sore and uncomfortable. A different brand of toothpaste that contains stannous fluoride caused me the same problem, so I'm thinking that ingredient could be the culprit. Show details

Sensodyne complete care

It's a good toothpaste, but it's only 3/4 full of toothpaste.. It's an expensive product, so I won't be buying it again.. Calling the packaging 100g and not filling it to 100g is a joke.. Back to another brand I will go.. Show details

Great product

Have been using sensodyne repair and protect for three months now after taking a dentist's recommendation. I am now not experiencing sensitivity in the problem teeth. It saved me a fortune because expensive dental procedures was the only other option. Show details

Caused more issues

This product has caused the inside lining of my mouth and my tongue to become painfully red and inflamed and ulcerated. When I stopped using it it went away within a day. It also made my teeth become more sensitive while using it. Total waste of money as it does the opposite to what it claims. Show details

this product has caused such pain and expense

Started using this product after dentist recommendation - I used Sensodyne Original previously with no problems. Slowly it has built up to horrendous teeth/mouth pain. Had several dentist visits (costly and painful) but nothing was helping. Did not for one minute think the toothpaste was causing it - as soon as I changed toothpaste the teeth started to gradually become less painful. Now 2 weeks after stopping using the repair & protect toothpaste my mouth as almost returned to normal. Would never use any Sensodyne product ever again after such an horrendous experience and seemingly not being the only one. Show details

Both cynic and skeptic I decided to purchase this product in what I thought would be a vain attempt to alleviate the sudden tooth sensitivity I experienced. Much to my joy and relief after only two days most of the pain has been aleaveated. After a week of sleepless nights and almost willing to take a pair of pliers to my teeth I was more than satisfied with the result.Recomended.

Questions & Answers


Why is this toothpaste still on the market? I have been climbing the wall with tooth sensitivity after changing from other Sensodyn tooth pastes. Repair & Protect made complete sense but to the contrary. I have changed a brush brand and now also swopped out Sensodyn SOFT brush for another but have investigated and see it is probably a poor tooth paste choice? Why from Sensodyn??? (South Africa)
