Be extremely careful with your the gums. If your teeth are sensitive, you should choose special toothpaste for sensitive teeth.
Tooth sensitivity can be caused not only because of inadequate dental care, but also because of certain foods (such as sugar). You should clean your teeth twice a day, use floss and mouth rinse.

No matter what toothpaste you use, remember that after brushing you must rinse your mouth with water.
