Sensodyne: One reason that people have sensitive teeth is from brushing too hard.! practice massaging your teeth with the toothbrush (very small vibrational motions) it will be more helpful and less damaging. (years after aggressive brushing, the teeth and gums gums get worn away).

Different problems: Gum sensitivity and tooth sensitivity are different problems requiring different solutions. Causes, and therefore treatments, can be numerous and varied. Please don't try to self-medicatee. See your Dentist for professional care, for differential diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Several: Toothpaste makes brushing fun, but it really isn't that important. I would select a major brand, and in the case of sensitive teeth, one with potassium nitrate in it. I use sensedyne or denquel.
