National: Sensodyne, one of the leading oral health brands in the country from GSK Consumer Healthcare has launched the first ever TV campaign for its toothbrush portfolio. The Effective & Gentle Care campaign attempts to break the common perception that hard brushing is imperative for effective cleaning and educates people on the importance of choosing a right toothbrush like Sensodyne.
Many people today opt for hard-bristled toothbrushes thinking that a harder scrub will lead to better cleaning of teeth. This is a misconception! In reality, depending on how vigorously one brushes teeth, a hard or even medium bristled toothbrush may damage gums and the protective layer of tooth (enamel). The campaign builds on this consumer insight and highlights how Sensodyne Toothbrushes are specially crafted with only “soft bristles” for gentle care. In a competitive category, Sensodyne Toothbrush thereby takes its place as a specialist brush that cares for teeth with gentle yet effective cleaning.
Effective & Gentle Care campaign has been brought alive with a simple storyline in 8 languages. The film begins with a woman vigorously brushing her teeth and showing some concern for her oral health. The TVC goes on to introduce Sensodyne brush, which is specially crafted with soft round tip bristles – which not only cleans effectively but is also gentle on teeth and gums.
Speaking on the campaign, Ms. Anurita Chopra, Area Marketing Lead- Oral Health, GSK Consumer Healthcare elaborated, “People want to choose the best for their Oral health. However, there are still many misconceptions regarding the choice of toothbrush & brushing technique. Being a trusted oral health care brand, we want to educate consumers on the importance of choosing a right toothbrush. This campaign attempts to dispel the common perception that hard brushing is needed for effective cleaning and positions Sensodyne toothbrush as a specialist brush for best care of teeth and gums”.
Sensodyne is the World’s No. 1 Sensitivity toothpaste and is recommended by dentists all around the world for sensitive teeth. Sensodyne also offers a range of toothbrushes with soft / extra soft bristles in India – designed especially for people with sensitive teeth.
