See your dentist: Who can clinically examine your teeth and take x-rays in order to determine the cause of your sensitivity. Whether or not your toothpaste and\or mouthwash has\is contributing to the sensitivity is irrelevant at this point. Your teeth shouldn't be sensitive and the cause needs to be determined. I doubt they caused any problem. Instead, they may be bringing another dental problem to the forefront.

No, biotene should: Not cause any sensitivity. Most people who use biotene products do so because they have dry mouth. Dry mouth can lead to a whole host of dental problems including tooth decay and gingival (gum) problems - these problems can in turn cause sensitivity. Please see your dentist for a full evaluation, it is the only way you will know what is really going on.

Biotene is not the cause of sensitivity. Evaluation of patient may lead to findings of gingival recession which cause be the cause of hypersensitivity.

Get Check up: Sensitive teeth have a huge myriad of possible causes/ etiology... See your denist for reasons, and yes, any orthodontic treatment may cause sensitivity, but using biotene toothpaste and mouthwash... Hmmm -- biotene is to help with dry mouth/xerostomia and what mouthwash are you using?

You need exam: Please see Dentist. Biotene shouldn't cause sensitivity. As Clear aligners don't position tooth crowns or roots as well as braces, post-treatment stability is harder to achieve. If teeth shift can cause soreness from traumatic occlusion. But so can cavities, gum disease, Meds, infections, etc. see Dentist.
