Many toothpaste manufacturers are adding potassium nitrate into their toothpastes to avoid the pain of sensitive teeth and gums, it helps alleviate the painful. It is the main ingredient in sensitivity toothpaste.
Tooth hypersensitivity happens when there is damage to enamel, irritating the nerves cells and making teeth vulnerable to hot, cold, acidic food and liquids. Within the nerve cells of the teeth, there is a higher amount of potassium ion concentration on the inside and sodium ions higher on the outside. When sensitivity and pain are experienced, potassium ions shift from the inside to the outside of the cell and vice versa.
Potassium nitrate is filtered into the surface of the enamel of the teeth, reaching the nerves inside and blocks the signals that the nerves in the teeth send to the brain.
Teeth can be sensitive for several reasons, mostly from enamel decay. Others have cracks in their teeth or cavities, and some have worn away their gums, exposing the delicate nerve endings to the food or beverages.
