Sensodyne (the original and the pronamel) is the only toothpaste I use.

I've got very sensitive teeth and this really helps me to cool the sensitivity down.

The taste is ok, I like the texture, Pronamel is more foamy compared to the original Sensodyne but both do great job.

I would say Pronamel is more gentle and helps my gums to stop bleeding. Sensodyne is more stronger, somehow it's been whitening my teeth so I really like the effect :)

The only thing, I find it quite pricy. But to be fair, nice healthy teeth are worth the money :)

If you tried the regular Sensodyne with baking soda and hated it, I hear you. I hated it too, because it tasted gross. But Sensodyne Pronamel is completely different. It doesn't taste gross at all! It is so much better for your teeth and your skin than many of the more popular brands. My favorite variant is Mint Essence and I've been using it for years.

When I started using Sensodyne, it wasn't really because I had a problem with tooth sensitivity; rather, it was because my regular toothpaste was causing rashes around the corners of my mouth. In addition, I wanted something that didn't sting my mouth so much while brushing, and also lathered less (too much foam makes it hard for me to see what I'm brushing). I needed something more gentle. Then I found Sensodyne Pronamel in the grocery, so I started using it. The rashes around my mouth went away and brushing became a more pleasant experience.

I wasn't sure about the enamel protection part of it when I started using it, but it's worth noting that over the years my teeth have been pretty resistant to staining despite my diet, which includes LOTS of Indian curry and tea. In fact, my dental hygienist once asked me if I had used whitening strips because my teeth looked pretty white. At that time, it had been years since I had used any teeth whitening products. I mentioned to her that I use this toothpaste and she said it was one of the better ones to use because many others are way too abrasive. Abrasiveness is denoted by the Relative Dentin Abrasion (RDA), where higher numbers mean it's more abrasive. Generally, toothpastes that have an RDA of less than 80 are considered low abrasive. Sensodyne Pronamel's RDA is around 35. You would be shocked at the RDA of some well-known brands, especially the whitening variants with the scrubbing crystals. Toothpastes with high abrasiveness will wear down the enamel, and the thinner the enamel is, the darker the teeth look. So, while it seems paradoxical, the key to having whiter teeth is not really to use "whitening" toothpastes. It's using a gentler toothpaste like Pronamel. (By the way, my hygienist mentioned that Pronamel would be better for me than "natural" fluoride-free toothpaste. In her practice she's seen a lot of patients and she said those that use Tom's of Maine have issues with their teeth. Maybe those patients were just not brushing regularly? I don't know. Make of that what you will.)

However, no toothpaste alone will give you healthy teeth. You also need to floss at least once a day (because plaque can harden and set on your teeth in as little as a day) and go for an oral prophylaxis with your dentist every 6 months. The flossing is huge---it can be quite a chore, but honestly your immune system is so much stronger when you keep your mouth clean. Just think: when your immune system doesn't have to fight off bacteria growing in your gumline, it has more resources to devote to battling allergies, cold and flu viruses, etc. They say flossing can add 6 years to your life.

Regarding price: Sensodyne is slightly more expensive than other drugstore brands, but I buy mine in bulk from Amazon so it's not so bad. Well worth it to have healthy teeth and skin.

Regarding packaging: So-so. The tube is not recyclable. Boo. :( The material used for the tube doesn't allow for much rolling in order to squeeze product towards the opening. But the design of the cap allows you to stand it upwards on your counter, which helps keep most of the product near the opening anyway.

All in all: Packaging could be better, but I haven't found anything better. I love this toothpaste!

I have to use a sensative toothpaste and my dentist said sensodyne is the best. I tried the pronamel kind and didn't care for it. It does help with the sensitivity but it looks like it doesn't clean my teeth really well. I notice a few stains inbetween my teeth. One thing i like is the packaging. The cap clicks on and off. Just a cool thing...lol The regular sensodyne is better.

This is amazing for getting rid of sensitivity, my dentist said to get this and that it's the best on the market and make sure to get the 'pronamel'. It helped me on the first use, it noticed that rinising wasnt nearly as bad, by the 3rd use all sensitivity is gone and stays away even through the day

This review is not necessarily the pronamel variety, but for Sensodyne in general. I have used this brand on and off since my teens and tried several of their offerings. This toothpaste does desensitize, my lips do not dry out unlike other with other brands and I have never had a cavity. No complaints at all

Very pleased with Sensodyne Pronamel toothpaste!
Pros:
- Pleasant taste, not too sharp or minty
- Helps with sensitivity when eating or drinking cold foods and liquids
- Sulfate free, does not irritate or dry out my mouth
- Nice packaging, upside down tube with large crew top
Cons: Very expensive, about $5-6 a tube, that is a lot of money for toothpaste IMO.
Overall: Despite the high price tag I will continue to buy Pronamel.

For some reason, this toothpaste really killed my gums. I continually had inflamed and bleeding gums while using this toothpaste. Unfortunately, I didn't make the connection until I'd used up the tube. I moved on to Tom's of Maine Sensitive Toothpaste, and suddenly my gums were fine. Regular Sensodyne was also fine for me, but this Pronamel stuff was horrible!

Great non SLS toothpaste that doesnt cause canker sores. (Check out my review for Biotene Toothpaste as well.) Super non messy tube (LOVE that) and good taste. The only thing I dont like about this toothpaste is that it says on the box you are not supposed to use it for more than a month. Still a great product though!

For years my teeth have suffered from enamel erosion, to the point where it feels as though some of my molars have cavities when I eat. My dentist has confirmed that I have no cavities, that the pain I feel is a result of the erosion. Unfortunately there really aren't any options to restoring lost enamel, but after using this toothpaste for the past week+, I no longer feel pain or discomfort when I eat. I will continue to use this for the full 4 weeks and then thereafter as needed. I think the taste is fine.

I think this has a good flavor to it. I guess everyone is different. My husband loves it and asked me to always buy this one. Our dental hygienist said our teeth look really good too. This is pretty expensive as far as toothpaste goes, but I think it's worth it.
