WHAT CAUSES SENSITIVE TEETH?
• Receding gums exposing dentine at the gum line.
• Erosion cause by fizzy, sweet and/or acidic drinks.
• Wearing of enamel caused by over-enthusiastic
brushing.
Any of these factors can make your teeth over-sensitive to
heat, cold, sweetness, acidity or brushing.
WHAT POTASSIUM NITRATE & SOIDUM
FLUORIDE 5/0.315% W/W TOOTHPASTE DOES
Potassium Nitrate & Sodium Fluoride 5/0.315% w/w
Toothpaste has a mint taste. The toothpaste contains two
active ingredients. Potassium nitrate is clinically proven to
prevent and relieve the pain of sensitive teeth by directly
calming the nerve endings inside your teeth. Sodium
fluoride helps prevent tooth decay (including the vulnerable
areas where gums have receded). Potassium Nitrate &
Sodium Fluoride 5/0.315% w/w Toothpaste also has an
antibacterial action and regular brushing promotes healthy
gums.

CHECK BEFORE YOU USE
• Do not use Potassium Nitrate & Sodium Fluoride
5/0.315% w/w Toothpaste if you ever had an allergic
reaction to potassium nitrate, sodium fluoride or any of
the other ingredients (see Further Information).
• Sensitive teeth may indicate an underlying problem that
needs prompt care. If symptoms persist or worsen see your
dentist.
• If you have been told by your doctor that you have an
intolerance to some sugars, contact your doctor before
using.
