GSK Consumer Healthcare is raising a cup – or two – of coffee to celebrate enjoying life’s simple pleasures without the interruption of tooth sensitivity. Joy – something we haven’t had much of throughout the pandemic – is all about feeling good in small and seemingly simple moments, but for those who suffer from sensitive teeth, something as little as enjoying a cup of coffee might not be so joyful.
Wednesday, September 29 is National Coffee Day and Sensodyne, the #1-dentist recommended toothpaste brand for sensitive teeth, has launched Repair and Protect with Deep Repair, a toothpaste for those with dentin hypersensitivity so they can enjoy a cup of coffee from their favorite café.
Americans agree that their morning cup of coffee is the most important thing needed to start the day, and hot coffee remains superior to iced coffee. According to research conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Sensodyne®*, the 2,000-person study also found that:
- HOT, HOT, HOT: 43% of people surveyed prefer hot coffee to the 34% of people who prefer iced coffee.
- COFFEE TIME = ME TIME: 55% of people surveyed prefer to enjoy their coffee alone, followed by grabbing a cup with friends or family, and then at a café.
- CAFFEINE CRAZED: 42% admitted that over the past year their daily coffee intake has increased.
Sensodyne Repair and Protect with Deep Repair is scientifically proven to go deep within the dentin tubules1** and provides clinically significant sensitivity relief with twice daily brushing2. Your caffeine addiction likely isn’t going anywhere, but your tooth sensitivity doesn’t have to stay.
For people with sensitive teeth, hot or cold beverages can unexpectedly trigger a jolt of nerve pain.
“Tooth sensitivity is something many people struggle with but by switching to Sensodyne, you can manage unwanted tooth sensitivities and get the protection you need,” said GSK Oral Care expert, Monica Biga. “It also provides a variety of benefits such as cavity protection, breath freshening, and whitening. Sensodyne helps people maintain a healthy smile and get back to enjoying coffee without the pain of sensitivity!”
YouTube creators such as The Try Guys, Slice N Rice, The Icing Artist, Adam Ragusea and more will encourage others who suffer from tooth sensitivity to also take control of their oral care by switching to Sensodyne®, reminding individuals that tooth sensitivity shouldn’t stop them from enjoying the little moments, and let them get back to enjoying the drinks they love.
