A UK experience programme with real patients confirmed instant and long-lasting pain relief with Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief, with 80% of participants reporting long-lasting relief from the first use (Colgate data on file).

Fifty six per cent of participants also spontaneously commented about the taste and texture (Colgate data on file).

‘Taste is fresh, teeth feel clean and it’s a long-lasting feeling’ is just one of the comments received.

Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief also significantly improves quality of life.

Patients reported a significant quality of life improvement after tracking a pain score for 24 weeks versus a negative control, using the validated Oral Health Impact Profile – 49 questionnaire (Colgate data on file).

Recommend Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief toothpaste to your patients to provide superior dentine tubule occlusion (Colgate data on file)#,* an acid resistant layer (Colgate data on file), instant** sensitivity pain relief (Nathoo et al, 2009), long lasting sensitivity pain relief (Nathoo et al, 2009) and improved patient satisfaction (Colgate data on file).
