Ever since I started using Sensodyne, per recommendation from my dentist, I noticed that my teeth are whiter and stronger. Without Sensodyne, my teeth are more sensitive to cold. Thus, I highly recommend Sensodyne to everyone! It works for sensitive teeth

I have had sensitive teeth since I know about myself. Sensodyne is the only product that I can use for my weak teeth. It helped me to calm the sensitivity that I was suffering from. This toothpaste has a perfect formula for sensitivity and whitening and I highly recommend it!

Last year, I started using Sensodyne, and since then, I feel pain in my front teeth. I didn’t realize that, actually, the toothpaste was the main reason for the pain!
I still have the same problem, although I started using Tom’s of Maine for sensitivity.
Could you please provide some recommendations that would replace the potassium nitrate?

By Anonymous
Firstly, you should go to the dentist and check if your sensitivity is caused by some dental problems.
If your teeth are healthy, I recommend using Colgate Prevident, which is not only a toothpaste for sensitivity, but it also provides cavity protection.
In general, sensitive teeth are exposed to receding gums and cavities. This toothpaste prevents both issues.
Sensodyne is not helpful at all

By Mary Lu
I must say that I had a terrible experience with Sensodyne. Last night I used Sensodyne for a very first time. I felt pain in my teeth the moment I started brushing my teeth.
My mouth tasted like a disgusting liquid sugar and I threw the toothpaste in the garbage.
It dries my mouth

I also had a bad experience with Sensodyne.
I stopped using Sensodyne regular because it seemed that my teeth became more sensitive ever since I started using it, so I switched to Sensodyne Proenamel. All I got was a dry mouth and long-lasting chemical taste in my mouth.
This site helped me to find out the reason for my problems.
Now I am using Colgate Sensitive because I have never experienced any inconvenience.
I won’t buy Sensodyne ever again

By Anonymous
Sensodyne made my teeth sensible!
The first time that I whitened my teeth was 17 years ago and I found it very painful. In order to prevent this and to prepare my teeth for whitening, I decided to use Sensodyne Pronamel toothpaste.
According to my dentist, I have enamel loss, so now, my teeth are sensitive.
I will never by this toothpaste again!
Sever teeth and gums pain

By John
Using Sensodyne gentle whitening was one of the worst things I have ever done in life! I still feel pain in my mouth, so I am using different methods for pain relief, for example, gargling sea salt water.
I can’t even eat properly, the great hope is that it will soon disappear. Probably, this toothpaste has caused the mump in my left cheek too.
Bleeding, headaches, sensitive teeth and more

Sensodyne seemed to cause me so many health issues. After using it for 2

days part of my mouth inside skin peeled off, resulting in bleeding, sores and headaches. Consequently, my teeth are sensitive now.
It has been 3 days since I have tried to stop this horror and get back to normal. Therefore, I am using Trader Joes instead of Sensodyne toothpaste that excludes SLS or fluoride. I must say that I feel much better now and that I feel less pain.
Stop the manufacture of this toothpaste!

By Anonymous
Thank you for sharing your experience!
Recently, I started using my second tube of repair and guess what? I woke up the other day with

        ” My gums were bleeding after the brushing…”

swollen lips and canker scores. Furthermore, my gums were bleeding after the brushing.
I am in pain! This is serious. I must do something to prevent this. I am considering going to the dentist, making a product complaint and return this expensive toothpaste.
Sensodyne is very harmful, why don’t you stop manufacturing it?
I experienced Sensodyne side effects

After two years using Sensodyne total care gentle whitening without any issue, I decided to try the new formula of Sensodyne. The first time when I used it, I tasted the strong peppermint flavor.
After two weeks, I experienced Sensodyne side effects such as sore tongue and lips, dry mouth. My friends said that I got it from the cold weather, but I knew it was because of something else. So, I started doing online research about this problem.
Now, when I read your reviews I realized that Sensodyne caused the problem.
This morning, I switched to Colgate and I already notice a positive change.
Sensodyne Repair & Protect causes pain

By Rebecca
I would like to share with you my experience with Sensodyne Repair & Protect, which was unfortunately not very pleasant.
When I first started using Repair & Protect I felt strong pain in my gums. This toothpaste caused painful sores on the corners of my mouth.
I decided to use the Sensodyne Fresh Mint that I used it before and there were significant changes! Since then, brushing isn’t painful anymore. For this reason, I doubt that I disagree with stannous fluoride.
I wake up with sores inside my mouth

By Anonymous
I only used twice the new Sensodyne Repair and 2 days after I woke up with mall sore along the inside of my mouth or lip.
At the beginning, I thought sodium was causing the problem. I had no idea that it was all because of the toothpaste.
But, maybe the fluoride causes the problem?
Why there is no disclaimer provided?

By Anonymous
I had the same inconvenience.
I had been using Sensodyne one period of time and the pain was constantly increasing. It was obvious that the pain was caused by the source.
I have several questions concerning this matter:
Why some people experience pain?
How long could least the pain?
In order to prevent of wasting our time doing researches on the internet why don’t you provide a disclaimer on the box?
Whose fault is this?
I was suffering when I stopped using Sensodyne

By Rob
I hadn’t had any issue with Sensodyne until I stopped using it. During the Thanksgiving vacation, I used another toothpaste and my teeth became very sensitive within few days.
I hope that these symptoms are just temporary and that there is a way to prevent them. It looks that Sensodyne or GSK Glaxo Smith Kline care more about the money than making a good product.
Hoping that you are site is not owned by GSK!
The Original Sensodyne was the best

By Anonymous
The Original Sensodyne used to be the best Sensodyne branded toothpaste ever. All new versions of Sensodyne made my teeth more sensitive.
It looks like that they made this on purpose, so the dentist could run a profitable business.
Highly fluoridated toothpaste cause hypothyroidism. According to many books and researches on this subject, GSK products seem to be nothing more than marketing tricks that make a profit from fake claims.
Sensodyne and Colgate Pro-Relief are very harmful

By Anonymous
Even though Sensodyne and Colgate Pro-Relief are highly recommended by many people including dentists, from my experience these tubes of toothpaste do more harm than good. For example, after using Sensodyne, my teeth became very sensitive. I decided to do some research on this topic so I found this site on the net.
For instance, this site is very useful. It helped us to detect the real issue and hopefully soon the doctor will soon give their preventive advice.

I to have destroyed my mouth using Sensodyne. I was using pronamel.

I stopped using about a month ago and my symptoms have not gotten worse, but my mouth is still a mess. It feels like the protective coating on my gums is gone. Spicy food is impossible and salads cause a lot of pain because of the tenderness of my gums. If anyone has found a way to help repair the damage, I would love to hear about it.

Lots of gargling with salt water And baking soda give temporary relief. My gums feel very damaged.

I also have experienced what seemed like a fungus on my tongue and the roof of my mouth felt like I had burned it. I stopped using Sensodyne toothpaste and the symptoms stopped.

This is the second time in two years I’ve experienced these symptoms while using Sensodyne. There must be an ingredient that needs to be better tested.

I used the Rite Aid generic version of Sensodyne Rapid Protection. I was using it because I’m having sensitivity in some teeth due to heat, cold or air.

Within two days my tongue feels sore and prickly along the edges, like I just ate a whole bag of salted sunflower seeds (but I didn’t eat any). I started wondering what was going on so I went back and carefully read the box of toothpaste. It has: “WARNING: If irritation occurs discontinue use.” I immediately stopped using it.

I hope two days wasn’t long enough to do any permanent damage. I’m scheduled to see my dentist on Sep 18th.

AnonymousAnonymous May 28 #1692531

I am so grateful to read these comments. I too used Sensodyne Rapid Relief after using regular Sensodyne for years.

I first noticed my lips felt like major sunburn – dry cracked burning itching swollen red and especially around the whole outline of my lips. No mouth sores though. So i tried everything – switched from tea to coffee, took a week of anti viral, then week of anti fungal, bought 20 various lips repair products, went to two doctors.

Finally started googling the specific toothpaste. This is so ridiculous – and stupid – such a simple cause – I only use a tiny bit of toothpaste at a time…i am thrilled to find the cause of months of aggravation.

Hi, I’ve just had the same reaction. Started using sensory experience rapid after having a crown on a tooth and was advised to use by my Denstist.

After the first use, my tongue became very ulcerated and sore but I didn’t realise it was the toothpaste. Continued to use for two weeks and my lips and tongue swollen and very ulcerated. Gums raw and bleeding. I stopped using the toothpaste and within a couple of days all problems went.

I started using again, thinking just in case it wasn’t the toothpaste. Problems came back immediately and gums started to bleed straight away. Felt like my mouth was burning all the time.

Stopped immediately. Will never use again.

  1. I have been using sensodyne repair and protect for 2weeks and I got sore tongue and gums
    Don’t use it

    1. The first time I used it, my bottom lip swelled up and I had several canker sores on my bottom gums and sides of my mouth. Am waiting for the blisters to go away; they are quite painful!

  2. BEWARE of the new synadyne rapid tooth paste, that just came out. I was on my second tube, I never had these problems before, until I started using it. I had 3 fillings to fall out and chip off, including my front bottom tooth chipped off in my hand. I had to go to the dentist. And get them fixed. Costed me, 500 hundred dollars, I didn’t have, I’m suing synadyne, I noticed that I didn’t have an issue until this

  3. I used the Sensodyne Fresh Mint toothpaste for over an week. I started noticing that I had a white film on my lips, and around my mouth area, in which initially I didn’t understand what was going on. I also developed that same thrush/film like inside of my mouth. All around my mouth area was re, burning, and itching also. It was so bad, that I scheduled an appointment with my Dermatologist, and she asked what brand toothpaste I was using, as she suspected the condition was related to toothpaste, and no skin condition. She came to the conclusion that it might be the toothpaste, and sure enough. I have stopped using Sensodyne for two days now, and switched to Colgate, no issues with my lips, no nasty taste or film in my mouth, or on my lips, and I don’t have anymore burning or redness/itching around my mouth area.

  4. I am using this product Sensodyne Rapidand my gums are bleeding a lot and inflamed,it is so hard to floss and brush even gently it hurts and my inner mouth has lost the skin around it I feel so much pain.

  5. I also had problems with Sensodyne Rapid Relief toothpaste. After using for couple of days I thought I was getting mouth ulcers, however it developed into a full blown allergy with my lips so puffed up and sore my work buddies thought I had botox injections!! I went to the doctor he gave me a antihistimine and it did settle over the next few days but was very red, inflammed and sore. I had used regular Sensodyne for years with no problem so definitely think something very different in the rapid relief paste…

    1. I thought I was the only one…..that rapid relief caused my lips to swell everyday. It would either be the top the bottom, top left top right,bottom left bottom right and I could not figure out what was causing it until i switched toothpaste and now for the last 2 weeks no swelling

  6. My mouth hurts so badly after using Sensodyne Complete Protection. I used to use Sensodyne regularly and then switched to an all natural essential oils toothpaste. I used my husband’s Sensodyne when mine ran out for a few days and now my mouth, especially lower gums and tongue have sores and really hurt. It’s miserably awful really. How do I relieve the discomfort?

  7. I was given a free sample of the new Sensodyne Rapid Relief toothpaste by my dentist. I’ve had swollen lips, blisters over my gums and a lot of pain. Never had a problem before with Sensodyne so it must be something in the new formula. Back to Colgate for me.

  8. I used Sensodyn for 1 week. During this time my lips got swollen and my gums painfull. My theeth were sensituve to hot and cold and I had a dry mouth. Little did I know it was Sensodyn. I went on a business trip using my Colgate sample toothpaste. My mouth healed during the week although the dryness persisted and also the sensitive theeth. When I got back I started using Sensodyn again and the swollen lips and the other symptoms intensified. I then realised it was the toiohpaste. I have now stopped using sensodyn but a week later my teeath are stil sensitive. Hopefully this will improve in due course.I will never buy Sensodyn again.

  9. Sensodyme rapid and whitening tooth pain made my mouth dry in the corners of my mouth and made my neck feel strange definitely a allergic reaction.

  10. Sensodyme should NOT be on the market. I have used this toothpaste for 2 weeks and my mouth is miserable. My tongue was stripped my inner mucosa is soar my gum is painful…I need some treatment for my damaged mouth.

  11. This is such a relief to read all of this!!

    I have been referred to an immunologist to have tests done to find out the cause of a horrendous allergic reaction I had back in July. It started with tender, tingly gums and eventually led to REALLY swollen lips and tongue which really scared me as I didn’t know what was causing it. I of course changed my toothpaste (Sensodyne Rapid Relief) in case it was that but was put on steroids to control it as we didn’t know what was causing it. I switched back to the Rapid last week when my other toothpaste ran out and it started happening again! So now I know it’s definitely this AWFUL toothpaste!!

  12. I have been using the sensodyne pronamel for a week and I now have fever blisters in my mouth , swollen tongue and gums ,lips and huge cold sores all over my lips and spreading up to my nose and chin . Very painful. So glad I thought to read the reviews.but to late hope my dentist can get me in tomorrow to show them so they don’t recommend this toothpaste to anyone.

  13. I’ve been using sensodyne for a1-2 weeks and I’m having an awful reaction to it. Like many other people are saying I experienced a swollen dry tongue, a feeling of ulcers in my mouth, and cracked dry lips. Just lovely. I started thinking, “What the heck is going on with me and why is this happening”? Initially I just thought it was tension causing the ulcers etc. but then thought, “am i doing anything different lately”? Took me a minute to remember trying out the new toothpaste but I’m convinced that it’s the cause. I’m stopping with the toothpaste today and keeping my fingers crossed that it’s the root of the problem. I’m switching back to my old toothpaste where I’ve never experienced this before. Throw the sensodyne away.

  14. I have developed a very dry inner mouth and couldn’t figure out what was causing it. I decided the only thing it might be is the Sensodyne Rapid that I’ve been using for the past few weeks;the symptoms have been getting progressively worse over the past week! ,Now I’m reading other folks have had similar symptoms and worse I do believe the toothpaste is the culprit!!!In the bin it goes!!!

  15. Suck a BAD product. I am 30 and have never had a cavity or problems with my teeth. I realized I wanted to keep it thay way so I decided to do a little more and strengthen My Enamel further. I went to the store and read all of the toothpaste products. Sensodyne seemed to be the best choice by what I read. So WRONG! I’ve used this product for a week and my teeth won’t stop aching. I am very upset and disappointed. Lawsuit may definitely be in full effect by next week if this pain persist. Unbelievable. I will be pulling these products off the shelves everytime I see them.

  16. I bought the Rapair and Protect it and used it yesterday. I ended up in th ER with a full blown allergy attack. I could not talk good, could not breathe (i do have COPD) turned firey red and had horrendous itching in my palms. The only thing I had done differently was this toothpaste. The doctor advised me to throw it away. No I am not sure this was the cause of the allergy but I am not taking any chances.

  17. So glad the light bulb over my head went off tonight and I thought…..maybe its my toothpaste…Sensodyne causing such pain on my tongue! My sentist noticed film on my tongue and some blister like things under upper lip. My tongue is so sore on the right side….i was scared i had tongue cancer. Now after reading this…I am suspecting the Sensodyne. Ive used it for many years with no problems….but NOW….no more. Thank you all!!!!

  18. I am another one of the victims of Sensodyne Whitening Repair and Protect! This is the second time. One year ago I made the mistake of brushing with the plain repair and protect. My mouth was left full of white blisters, sores, swollen lips and the back of my throat (because I brush the back of my throat), had yellow scalding as well. Only after spending a fortune on doctor, medication (anti allergy, numbing mouth cream, anti inflammatory) and 10 days of not being able to eat which lead to weight loss did my mouth start returning to normal. Two weeks ago, my tooth had chipped slightly and felt exposed. !y friend had the whitening repair and protect. I applied a pea sized amount to the bottom front tooth. The following day my mouth had broken out in the area where the tooth paste was applied. My bottom lip (right side), and the entire right hand side of my mouth. This time I have taken photos as the reaction just got worse. Again its coat me a fortune to treat the symptoms. I’m now only back to normal. However not only the normal costs, I have lost work, as I could not see my clients with a lip that looked like I had some serious STD! Lost weight again! My relationship suffered. Couldn’t even kiss my partner. Could barely brush my teeth. Leaving me with a horrid tasting mouth! Sensodyne is horrific if you have a reaction to it. When I see it on the counter I’m so annoyed. This time I’m taking it further. I’m not sure how I’m going to take on GSK. But I’m going to try!

  19. My symptoms were similar to those previously mentioned (Very dry mouth, throat & tongue, blisters on tongue and inner lower lip, sore tongue and roof of mouth, metallic taste and food taste impairment). I had been using Sensodyne toothpaste for years and had recently been using the Gentle Whitening version together with the Sensodyne mouthwash. My symptoms got worse over the space of about a week until I began to suspect the mouthwash
    as I had bad experiences of previous brands of mouthwash. However the last time I used the toothpaste my tongue immediately felt horrendously dry even after rinsing & gargling with water to try and get rid of all traces of the paste. I immediatley stopped the use of both products & one week later my symptoms are improving slowly and I have had no more blisters although I still have some dryness and tongue sensitivity. I would never use either of these products again.

  20. Took me some time to realise what was causing swollen upper lip, dry mouth, gum peeling & tenderness + lately metallic taste. This started suddenly overnight end October and thought maybe a bite or allergy but it didn’t clear. No tooth pain so wondering if may be a medical condition. Didn’t know whether to see a doctor or dentist. Then few weeks later I did wonder if it could be toothpaste as problem would worsen after brushing teeth. I have been using sensodyne for some years but noticed that I had inadvertently bought complete care extra fresh. Bought the usual complete care which I normally use but problem still persisted. Yesterday while shopping I bought another toothpaste and since last night and this morning the problem is now improving. So disappointed that sensodyne have ‘improved formula’ which has ruined a good product. I’ve only just found all these adverse reviews which if I’d seen earlier would’ve prompted me to ditch the new formula toothpaste earlier.

  21. After using sensodyne for 2 weeks or so the inside of both the top and bottom lip felt raw and the top of mouth close to my teeth and the tip of my toungue felt like I got pizza burn and my bottom front teeth felt sore like I had been chewing on tree bark or something.

  22. I have used pro namel toothpaste since it has been on the market. The last two tubes immediately broke my mouth out in sores, I had to go to the Doctor for medicine. My grandson only 7 yrs old used it only once and said Granny I am not using this no more it burns my mouth. In conclusion do not pay this rebellious price for something to hurt you and send you to the Dr. in pain. gentle whitening (really). Go back to Colgate save money and pain.

  23. Two years ago my dentist recommended to use Sensodyne but my teeth aren’t sensitive so I disregarded her recommendation. Last year, my dental hygienist said the same thing , so I decided to try it. After using Sensodyne for a week I felt bad, not in my mouth but felt sort of nauseated. I couldn’t relate that to the tooth past but I stopped using it anyways . After a week I felt normal again. Now, few months later, I thought that it was crazy to relate my bad feelings to Sensodyne tooth paste, so I started using it again. After couple of days of using Sensodyne, I had the same problem so I stopped using it and now I feel ok again. The reaction may or may not be related to the tooth paste but I am not using it again.

  24. Have used the old pink sensodyne for years when I’ve needed it and I works great. Can no longer buy it, I’ve had the Same problems listed here by everyone else. Why fix something If it ain’t broke?.so much for progress

  25. This toothpaste is horrible! Increased sensitivity and totally threw off the pH in my mouth. Never experienced such dry mouth like this and the aftertaste is nasty!

  26. I made the mistake of using the sensodyne whitening paste a few months ago. I tried filing complaints, read online complaints, doesn’t seem like anyone is doing anything.


    I now can only use basic organic toothpaste with no SLS or fluoride. Since the one experience with Sensodyne, my mouth and gums now get swollen and irritated if I use any main stream toothpaste. I used to use Crest whitening paste with no issues, and now it also causes my mouth to swell and develop ulcers.

    Is it possible that the initial reaction from whatever is in Sensodyne caused permanent damage that I’m always going to have to deal with when selecting toothpastes?!

  27. I started using Sensodyne Rapid Relief on my dentist office staff recommendation. All was ok for the first 2 weeks, then one morning woke up with mouth ulcers, sore & bleeding gums, fever blisters and swollen lips. Got really bad and went to doctor after one week. She prescribed Magic Mouthwash, after saying she hadn’t seen anything like this before. I soon developed oral thrush and she sent me to ENT who prescribed Nystatin for thrush and Dexamethasone (corticosteroid). It’s been exactly 3 weeks from first reaction and still have sores on lips, especially the corners. I’m so glad I found this website because I was worried I might be developing an autoimmune disease. I will be reporting this information to my dentist, PCP and the ENT. I’m sorry for all who have suffered and thank you for reporting your experiences.

    1. So happy to have read this! Omg!! I am in the absolute worse pain… I just started using this toothpaste I was reccomend it by my dentist and hygienist. I recently had a cavity re-filled and was told by my dentist to brush twice a day with this tooth paste and to apply it on my teeth and leave it on over night.. Thinking my dentist knows best I did what she had told me. My teeth were increasing becoming more sore almost unbearable the pain i was feeling all of my teeth were in pain and throbbing. I started getting headaches and sharp pains in my head and feeling nauseous. I continued to use this tooth paste for a week and was realizing that everytime I used it it was like a shock to my teeth the pain was so bad I wanted to rip them out of my mouth. Thank God I found this site I absolutely will not be using this stuff ever again. Hopefully now my teeth can go back to normal.

  28. I have suffered for lichen plants for a number of years and also used sensory experiences toothpaste with no adverse effects. When using the new tube of pronamel my gums became extremely sore, thinking it was the planus which made brushing extremely painful. I then tried a sensodyn new gum repair toothpaste and my mouth and gums got worse. A hunch that it might be my toothpaste made me look up this website and realised lt was,not just me. So thanks to all previous comments and the toothpaste is now in the bin and I shall mention this issue to my dentist.

  29. I have been using Sensodyne Sensitivity & Gum for 2 days and my gums are red and sore. My mouth is also dry and I’ve a few blisters on my lips. Has anyone else found this with this product?

  30. I started using Sensodyne’s complete protection toothpaste more than a month ago and my gums and the tip of my tongue feels like burning whenever eating. I’ve never had this problem before though. -_-

  31. Dentist advised that I use Sensodyne. Bought Sensodyne Proenamel 3 weeks ago. From the start didn’t like the taste of it and noticed that my mouth started developing sores, gums got weaker, teeth felt weaker and lips were itchy and swollen in the mornings. Didn’t connect Sensodyne to these adverse reactions until yesterday after making an appointment with dentist to seek corrective actions. This is not right. We deserve to be treated better than guinea pigs.

  32. I used sensodyne rapid relief only once the day before yesterday and now suffering with a mouth full of sores and swollen up to my ears!! What the hell sensodyne?!?! I struggle to chew so eating yoghurt because it’s just too painfull to chew anything.. Honestly don’t get how this terrible product can still be sold in shops everywhere.

    1. Made my throat sore lost my voice. Then my mouth throat and lips super dry. I thought something was seriously wrong with me. Then it hit me after I brushed my teeth and lips felt tingling burning swelling it must be the toothpaste! I cant believe it caused all my problems.

  33. Like most of the previous comments, I have experienced severe dry mouth, it feels like my inside lower and upper lip area is burnt, and I have blisters on my inside upper lip, I too used sensodyne repair n protect, I though this was from a new toothbrush but now I see it is the toothpaste, I wnot be using this toxic garbage again

  34. Like most of the previous comments, I have experienced severe dry mouth, it feels like my inside lower and upper lip area is burnt, and I have blisters on my inside upper lip, I too used sensodyne repair n protect, I though this was from a new toothbrush but now I see it is the toothpaste, I wnot be using this toxic garbage again

  35. After changing to Sensodyne rapid relief last November I woke up with mouth ulcers, swollen lips, very sore sides of my tongue and very dry mouth, I thought I’d had some form of allergic reaction so visited my Gp who thought I was B12 deficient so did blood tests, my results came back normal and was told I probably had contracted a virus instead, all the while continuing to use the rapid relief for the next six weeks not realising this was the culprit, I then decided to stop using the toothpaste to try and rule it out and behold the symptoms immediately started to improve, this was at the start of January and have been using normal sensodyne since then with no problems.
    Just to prove it’s the rapid relief I tried it again this week and the same bad reaction!!!
    ITS DEFINITELY THE TOOTHPASTE! Hopes this helps others come to the same conclusion.

    1. Hi Paul,
      I’ve just had similar…I went to the doctor and described a very dry tongue, burning sensation in lips and tongue, tight throat, sores in throat and on tongue, white tongue, peeling lips, swollen lips and tongue, redness of membranes at back of mouth, and the feeling of a delay on the movement of the tongue and the back of my throat is scalded. All of these symptoms coming and going from day-to-day! The only difference is, I told the doctor I thought it was Sensodyne…I’m being sent for B12 blood test! I’ve scoured these pages for people saying how long it takes for these symptoms to disappear!! It’s been three weeks since I stopped using it and although my lips feel slightly less swollen and I can move my tongue a little better, it’s all sore, burning and dry still. I wondered…how long did it take for your symptoms to go??!! I’d be very grateful if you would let me know! I can’t find this out anywhere. Thank you!

    2. I just checked and mine is the rapid relief too! Just a week and a half and my mouth is so sore.

  36. Started using Sensidyne for obvious reasons and my teeth hurt soo much and eating us painful, stopped toothpaste straight away. I suffer with Trigeminal Neuralgia so this toothpaste has seriously made things worse

  37. I had noticed my teeth were getting bad in the last month with sensitive. So I got the new sensodyne I went to use it this morning an I got to my front teeth an right side an i nearly screamed in pain. It was instant, I have never had a problem with Colgate toothpaste or experienced this ever. I will be throwing it in the bin. I’m glad it helps some people but for me it was the biggest mistake ever. My teeth have been causing me pain so badly today. Even the air is hurting.

  38. So glad to see this information. I recently had a dental visit and started using Sensodyne. My gums and inside my lips are so sore! I’ve never experienced this before. Also it hasn’t helped my sensitive tooth (from a recent filling) at all.

  39. I have completed a sample tube of rapid relief with no issues. Started a new tube a d woke up this morning with blisters on both top and bottom gums. Lips are swollen too. Would not recommend this toothpaste.

  40. I have been using sensodyne for years, but recently have been getting bits of skin peeling from my gums and have to use tissue to wipe them from my mouth, it is horrible and embarrassing, I also get mouth ulcers on my tongue and cheeks, asked my dentist and she said it could be the toothpaste, could not understand why it could be the toothpaste as I have never used anything else, i do alternate between sensodynes offers so could not pinpoint which one is the culprit, but I am glad I looked on this site, feel reassured now, can anyone recommend a toothpaste that has better ingredients

  41. I just started using Sensodyne Rapid Relief about a month ago. Over the past 2 weeks, the inside of my mouth, tongue and inner lip have developed inflammation and sores and the top layer of skin tissue is peeling off. It is painful to eat and brushing my teeth is torture. I am seeing the dentist in two days, but am so relieved to find the feedback on this site because I was afraid that something was seriously wrong with me. I am going to try a natural toothpaste like Toms of Maine and see if that helps in the meanwhile.
