SENSODYNE® Extra Whitening: Toothpaste for Sensitive Teeth and Cavity Prevention
Sensodyne Extra Whitening breaks up stains to get your teeth whiter and is also gentle on your teeth. Like other Sensodyne toothpaste products, when used every day, Sensodyne Extra Whitening relieves sensitive teeth by building a protective barrier that blocks the pain caused by hot, cold, sweet, acidic and other contact triggers and it keeps it from coming back. It also leaves a fresh, clean feeling in your mouth.
Sensodyne contains the maximum strength of a desensitizing ingredient (Potassium Nitrate) that the FDA allows. Potassium Nitrate desensitizes the nerve endings within the tubules found in the dentin, the sensitive layer of the tooth under the enamel, causing them to be less responsive to hot, cold, sweet, acidic or contact triggers. When used everyday, Sensodyne builds a protective barrier that blocks the pain of sensitive teeth and keeps it from coming back.
Active ingredients: Potassium Nitrate 5%, Sodium Fluoride .15% w/v fluoride ion.
Inactive ingredients: Cocamidopropyl betaine, flavor, glycerin, hydrated silica, PEG-8, sodium hydroxide, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, sodium saccharin, pentasodium triphosphate, sorbitol, titanium dioxide, water, xanthan gum.
