GSK is leading a campaign to raise awareness among dentists, DCPs and patients about two common conditions: erosive tooth wear and dentine hypersensitivity (DH).

Seventy-seven percent of British adults exhibit signs of tooth wear.1 You can now download the GSK BEWE app from the App Store for a comprehensive guide to erosive tooth wear diagnosis. Recommend Pronamel for daily protection from the effects of erosive tooth wear.

Dentine hypersensitivity is also widespread. 41.9% of adults have experienced it2 and over 70% of sufferers consider the sensations to take pleasure out of eating and drinking.3 Recommend Sensodyne Repair & Protect for daily repair from DH.
