Luis Manzano is Sensodyne's “Say No to Ngilo!” Campaign Advocate

Luis relies on Sensodyne to get over his pangingilo anxiety. “When I started using Sensodyne, it made a big difference in my life! Now I get to enjoy all my favorite drinks and eat my favorite food. No more pagtitiis, no more pangingilo!”

According to Dr. Fernando “Andy” Fernandez, DMD, FPCOMS, President of the Philippine Dental Association, “9 out of 10 Filipinos suffer from sensitive teeth or pangingilo."

"Most of the time, people ignore and endure pain caused by teeth sensitivity. When the nerve to a tooth is irritated, the toothache pain sometimes become unbearable that they do not get to enjoy their favorite food and drinks. As a dentist, I am concerned with how pangingilo affects my patients’ lives,” he added. “This year, I am renewing my commitment to fight against pangingilo. I am saying ‘No to Ngilo!’ Let’s all take part as we build a stronger force against sensitive teeth. It is time for every Filipino to “Say No to Ngilo!”

Sensodyne, in collaboration with the Philippine Dental Association (PDA), is embarking on the advocacy to fight against sensitive teeth through the “Say No to Ngilo!” campaign. This remarkable commitment extends beyond a mere information campaign and toward proactive efforts to improve oral health care in the country, including the help of 2,000 dentists who have committed to the fight against dentine hypersensitivity through educating their patients on proper oral hygiene and using effective tools to combat pangingilo.
“GlaxoSmithKline, through our brand, Sensodyne, has provided solutions to Filipinos for sensitive teeth.
