I like it, but...

...my teeth actually feel more sensitive after using this. ???
I normally don't have any sensitivity. Ice cream, hot soup, the dentist using the cold water spray don't affect me.
I use Sensodyne at night when oranges are in season because the acids can cause sensitivity and I love eating fresh oranges.
Recently, the wife added to the cart a multi-pack of Tom's sensitivity because we like a lot of their other products. However, the wife and I both noticed sensitivity after using Tom's for two weeks morning and night when we ran out of Tom's regular toothpaste. It was strange. I switched to Sensodyne for a week and the sensitivity went away. Both the Sensodyne and Tom's sensitive have the same 5% potassium nitrate as the active ingredient. So not sure what caused the sensitivity.
I prefer the taste of Tom's over Sensodyne.
