Can stannous fluoride cause sensitivity in some ppl? my teeth/gums seem more sensitive w/new toothpaste, which has stannous instead of sodium fluoride

Sensitivity: Sensitivity more likely to be to one of the inactive ingredients, not the fluoride. You may want to return to using your original toothpaste.
