My family and I just got back from an amazing weekend spent in the mountains of North Carolina. The night we arrived, my husband was quickly sent off to the grocery store to pick up the essentials: milk, baby food, cereal, and Sensodyne toothpaste.

With eight adults in the house, there was plenty of toothpaste to go around—that wasn't the issue—it was the fact that no one brought Sensodyne. One or two days using another brand was okay, my mom assured, but once day three hits it would be another story. Those who suffer from sensitive teeth can relate. Whether it's heat or cold, sensitive teeth can take the fun out of even a simple sip of spiced cider or that mint chocolate chip ice cream we all stopped for while perusing one of our favorite small towns.

As usual, it seems my mom knows what she's talking about. Sensodyne Pronamel Gentle Whitening is the number one best-selling toothpaste on Amazon. At the time this story was published, 651 reviewers had chimed in with their thoughts, 75 percent of which gave a perfect, 5-star rating.

Some of the resounding praise came around the toothpaste's ability to combat teeth sensitivity, not surprisingly. "I've been using it for a couple years now and this stuff works," one reviewer wrote. Another added, "This is my new favorite toothpaste!" While one even credited Sensodyne Pronamel for healing damaged nerves in her gums. It wasn't all thumbs-up though. A number of critical reviews centered around a cap design which them claimed to be tricky to unscrew. What's my mom's take on the cap situation? "No problem with the cap at all," she said. Case closed.
