    After using this formula when you gums and teeth become hyper sensitive then what do you use?

    • Jenny says:

      You probably need desensitizing toothpaste that is especially designed for sensitive teeth. Some of them contain potassium nitrate or calcium or other ingredients that block the sensations on the surface of the tooth and the nerve and help to prevent pain temporarily. Also your dentist can apply a sealant on the tooth, so you may want to consult with him/her as well.
