To assess whether Colgate* Sensitive Pro-Relief™ toothpaste (test) provides superior relief of tooth sensitivity to a desensitizing toothpaste containing potassium ions (control) when brushed twice daily for a period of 8 week.
Study design and methods
80 adult male subjects with tooth sensitivity used either Colgate* Sensitive Pro-Relief ™ (n=40), or a desensitizing toothpaste, Sensodyne Total Care Gentle Whitening (n=40). Subjects brushed their teeth twice a day (morning and evening) for 1 minute each time. Sensitivity to pressure and to air was measured at 1, 2, 4, and 8 weeks.
Colgate* Sensitive Pro-Relief™ reduced tooth sensitivity significantly more effectively than a commercial desensitizing toothpaste containing potassium ion, Sensodyne Total Care Gentle Whitening, after 2, 4, and 8 weeks.
Colgate* Sensitive Pro-Relief™ toothpaste provides superior relief of tooth sensitivity, as compared to Sensodyne Total Care Gentle Whitening when brushed twice daily after 2, 4 and 8 weeks.
