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.

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..

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.
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.
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.

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.
This product hurt my teeth when brushing
Whenever I brushed my teeth with this product I was in pain. Brushing over certain teeth would send a shiver through me and it was extremely uncomfortable. I decided to try another toothpaste and swap back to Sensodyne occasionally to see if the same thing happened.
I had absolutely no discomfort with other toothpastes but whenever I swapped back to Sensodyne the painful shiver returned.
I can only conclude from this - that Sensodyne toothpaste contributes to sensitive teeth and makes them worse.
I won't be wasting my money in future.
This is the second sensodyne product ive ever used and i must say i think i've found my favorite. It had a weird 'warming?' sensation that is really pleasant.
The paste is good consistency (not too watery) and had a separate lid as opposed to a flip lid. In regards to performance I felt that it actually worked really well to repair my teeth (which aren't in the best shape). At night i combine it with a tooth mousse (which assists in improving damaged enamal) however i feel like i almost dont even need that anymore. 10/10
'warming sensation', good results (clean and repair of teeth)
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)
