Upon completion of reading these articles, the clinician will be able to know that Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothpaste, used twice daily, significantly reduces dentin hypersensitivity, and is significantly more effective in reducing dentin hypersensitivity than Sensodyne Rapid Relief Toothpaste and Crest Cavity Protection Toothpaste.
