Sensodyne Pronamel E-Mail Response

Recommended Posts

just sharing an e-mail response I received today  :)

 

"Thank you for your enquiry regarding presence of gluten and related products in Sensodyne and Pronamel range of oral products. Sensodyne and Pronamel range of oral products do not contain gluten as an ingredient either in the raw materials or in the list of ingredients used in Sensodyne formulations. 

GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (GSK CH) only uses the highest quality raw material specifications for use in its products. GSK CH does not screen/test final product for gluten, instead GSK CH relies on detailed responses from suppliers of the raw materials which are used in the supply chain for these products. These raw material suppliers have respectively confirmed the absence of gluten in their specifications. As GSK CH does not test for gluten we are unable to provide a specific detection method or threshold for gluten and its derivatives. 

We always recommend using any GSK product as described in the product label. Toothpastes do not contain prescribing information.

For consumers, who are intolerant or highly allergic to certain ingredients, it is recommended if there are further concerns to consult your doctor before using this product. 

We appreciate your taking the time to contact us."

Does crest have gluten in it? Does certain toothpastes make anyone's face break out? Or give u some kind of inflammatory response?

My son has problems with main stream toothpaste. Causes his gums to swell and get canker sores. It isn't about gluten it is some other ingredient, maybe sulphites, that bothers him. He gets some all natural type of toothpaste. Its free of sulphites, and lots of other things like this one.

it's what my dentist said I should switch to because my gums are slightly receding on the bottom right side because of my brushing techniques  <_<  I'm also using ACT mouthwash too.  

 

just putting this out there, but I didn't know you are supposed to brush the chewing surface of your teeth first with the more concentrated toothpaste solution and then when it starts to foam, move onto the sides near the gums.  Still working to retrain myself on that habit  :)

 

on the plus side this was the visit with no xrays, so no cavities, and my hope is that when I go back for my next cleaning with xrays there will be no cavities because that's usually my expensive visit.  I take good care of my teeth, but those xrays get me.  I've had weird reactions with dental materials specifically adhesives, and I had to get my first root canal last year and then get a porcelain crown since I react to nickel.  The area where I had the root canal still swells, and after even more observation certain foods make it swell or feel inflamed sometimes but not all the time.  It's one of those things that makes me feel crazy, but there's no denying that a bump can be felt on my gum sometimes and then it disappears haha  My dentist said he had never heard of that happening, but suggested that maybe the area's gum tissue is very delicate from all the trauma it's endured.  My dentist looked over the area, and he said everything looked healthy, so I told him hopefully that as time goes by on the gluten-free diet my body settles itself down  :)

 

I've made various posts on here related to problems at the dentist, but thankfully he listens to what I have to say and doesn't play the holier than thou card.  I've got to say I'm really thankful for that!

 

Happy weekend everyone!
