Thanks for writing to us.

Sensodyne tooth is recommended for sensitive teeth.

If you are not c/o snesitivity,you can switch on to colgate toothpaste.

Since you are pregnant,chances of gingivitis is high in your case.

Please do visit a dentist and get a clinical check up done.

Use chlorhexidine mouthrinses to gargle.

Take care.

Dentist Dr. Yogesh Tripathi's  Response
sensodyne or for that matter any other sensitivity toothpaste is normally used for sensitive teeth
so if you are having sensitivity than you may use that or else you may use any normal toothpaste
having said that i will also like to inform that normally in pregnancy ...pregnancy induced gingivitis is common so maintain good oral health by following
1.luke warm saline rinses after every meal
2.hexindine mouthwash after breakfast
and also pay a visit to your dentist in the meanwhile
best of luck
