Sensodyne Pain Causes and Reviews

Pain is a signal in your nervous system that something may be wrong. It is an unpleasant feeling, such as a prick, tingle, sting, burn, or ache. Pain may be sharp or dull. It may come and go, or it may be constant. You may feel Pain in one area of your body, such as your back, abdomen, chest, pelvis, or you may feel Pain all over.

Pain can be helpful in diagnosing a problem. If you never felt Pain, you might seriously hurt yourself without knowing it, or you might not realize you have a medical problem that needs treatment.

There are two types of Pain: acute and chronic. Acute Pain usually comes on suddenly, because of a disease, injury, or inflammation. It can often be diagnosed and treated. It usually goes away, though sometimes it can turn into chronic Pain. Chronic Pain lasts for a long time, and can cause severe problems.

Pain is not always curable, but there are many ways to treat it. Treatment depends on the cause and type of Pain. There are drug treatments, including Pain relievers. There are also non-drug treatments, such as acupuncture, physical therapy, and sometimes surgery.

Sensodyne Pain Reviews

Tue, 20 Aug 2013


Recently bought Sensodyne Repair Protect within two
weeks I started experiencing unbelievable Pain in my front upper tooth
and gum. It felt as if the root was exposed. I also had a bad headache,
which could have been caused due to the stress of the Pain. Phoned
dentist who was fortuitously away otherwise I would have wasted money on
something that was not a bad tooth. When my lower teeth started to
tingle I immediately decided that it could not be a bad tooth and
stopped using the Sensodyne Repair Protect tooth paste by morning
the 'root' Pain in the gum had gone but the sensitivity of the worst
tooth persists even after a few days it is still sensitive to pressure
but seems to be getting less. I hope the Sensodyne Repair Protect
has not damaged the nerves. I agree someone should start a class action
against them. I live in South Africa where we don't have such

Sensodyne Repair Protect and by the looks of it
all their other toothpastes are BAD for YOU and your health. Don't use
them and spread the word.

I also have a nightmare story about Sensodyne! I bought a tube of the repair and protect, i used it for a little over a week, and by the end, my lips and gums were swollen, my teeth tingled and I had a mouth full of ulcers! I've been in agony! I stopped using the toothpaste several days ago, and the Pain is finally starting to let up, but my mouth is still extremely sore! They either need to remove this product from the market or put a warning label on it!!!

Sorry to hear about your Painful ulcers. Like i said in my review there ought to be a class-action lawsuit against the manufacturers!

I used Sensodyne Iso Active for three days and now have 10 Painful mouth ulcers under my tongue!

After reading all the comments, I am certain this unbearable Painful sore gums I've never experienced before is caused by Sensodyne toothpaste. I am furious about this company and the fact that this defect product is recommended by dentists? Conspiracy much?
It needs to be heard and they should be sued!

I have been using Sensodyne Repair Protect for about 2 weeks now. My gums and lips (on the inside) are raw. I brush 2 times a day, floss nightly and use Listerine. I was sure it could not be gingivitis. I cannot use the Listerine at this time as it burns horribly. I was doing some research as to what could be causing my Pain as my dentist is baffled too. I never thought it could be Sensodyne that was causing my problems. I am changing toothpaste now. Thank to all you who have posted,

Unlike most of the people who have posted here, it took me MUCH longer to realize it's the toothpaste that's been causing the Pain in my mouth for a couple of years now. I honestly had considered that I may have some form of cancer in my mouth. It never occurred to me that it could be the toothpaste causing it ... until a couple of nights ago. I used a different toothpaste out of curiosity and immediately had less Pain in my mouth (tongue and gums). I've even mentioned the Pain in my mouth to my dentist at the past couple of cleanings, and they never asked if I may be using Pronamel/Sensodyne. After checking Google to see if others were having the same kinds of problems, I am shocked at the number of people who have been experiencing the same thing with this product! It really should be taken off the shelves!

I have used many Sensodyne products over the years with varying results - I have had many teeth problems, but cannot truthfully point to any source or offer empiric evidence either way. For the last few years I have used Arm and Hammer sensitive with no problems, and existing Pain/sensitivity problems went away. I recently bought Sensodyne Repair Protect. First use there was blood! Same with 2nd and 3rd uses. At this time two of my teeth began to give Pain. I stopped using the Sensodyne, and returned to Arm Hammer. The Pain continues, but the bleeding stopped immediately I stopped using the Sensodyne. This was all very very recently, and I am hoping that the Pain will soon go the way of the bleeding. I smoke, and smoking contracts the blood vessels in the gums, and so restricts bleeding, and so I have not experienced bleeding for decades - until now. The very sudden bleeding and the equally sudden Pain happened immediately following first use of the Sensodyne, and I do not believe this was a coincidence. I have checked recall information, and my batch number does not match the most recent recall number. However, I still think these negative effects are due to the Sensodyne Repair Protect - just too close.
I do not wish to give a negative feel to any Sensodyne product. We are all different, and this may be just MY reaction to this toothpaste. However, it WAS my reaction.
On a possible happy note, the Pain does appear to be reducing. So, whatever the cause, it does appear to be reversible. I truly hope so, as, in my experience, tooth Pain is up there with the very worst of Pains.

My wife and I have used the original formula Sensodyne for over 30 years with great success and no side effects. Now this product is no longer available in Canada and we are both suffering Pain. Why was this product discontinued ?
