Potassium nitrate is an ingredient used in toothpaste made for sensitive teeth.
Potassium nitrate has met the requirement of desensitizing tooth pain. It is thought to act directly on the pulpal sensory nerves. When cold or air causes tooth pain, the potassium actually calms the nerves, preventing the transmission of pain . After an initial depolarization of sensory nerve fiber membranes, excess potassium halts repolarization. Thus, the ability of potassium nitrate to quell dentinal hypersensitivity may be due to an irreversible depolarization. Several brands of toothpastes are available with potassium nitrate.
