Sensodent K dental cream is non-fluoridated cream used for dentin hypersensitivity, it provides rapid relief for sensitive teeth. It works to relieve tooth sensitivity rapidly when directly applied to the gums. Hypersensitivity of tooth is characterized by short, sharp pain while taking hot, cold, sweet or very acidic foods and drinks, or breathing in cold air.
Potassium nitrate is used to prevent cavities and to reduce pain from sensitive teeth (dentinal hypersensitivity). It calms the nerves in the teeth and also build-up potassium ions over time which helps to desensitize nerves in the tooth pulp, making them irresponsive to sensitivity stimuli.

What is dentinal hypersensitivity?
It is a common clinical condition usually associated with exposed dentinal surfaces. The desensitizing agents include toothpastes, mouth washes or chewing gums and they act by either occluding the dentinal tubules or blocking the neural transmission.
What does potassium nitrate do for teeth?
It builds protection over time to help desensitize nerves in tooth pulp. Build-up of potassium ions over time helps desensitize nerves in the tooth pulp, making them irresponsive to sensitivity stimuli (e.g. cold water, hot coffee, etc.)
Can over brushing cause sensitive teeth?
Yes, brushing too hard or too frequently can contribute to gum recession and/or enamel wear, which, over time, can expose the soft, inner layer of your tooth, known as dentin, and can lead to sensitive teeth.
