Taste and smell are closely connected.

Taste buds identify basics such as salt, sweet, sour, bitter and umami, but our sense of smell is needed to provide the rest of the input to notice flavour.

People who dislike a certain flavour such as mint, will usually find it difficult to tolerate its aroma, finding it pervasive, pungent and repellent

People with sensory processing issues can be overly sensitive to certain smells, from minty toothpastes to scented shampoos. Taste and smell are closely connected. Your taste buds can identify basics such as salty, sweet, sour and bitter. But your sense of smell provides the rest of the input to notice flavour. That’s why smell can make a difference to people with taste sensitivities.

People may develop sensitivities during their life, possibly due to chronic conditions such as dementia or medication.

Carers may therefore find that someone suddenly rejects a toothpaste they’ve used for years as they now find the smell turns them off. In circumstances where someone refuses to accept oral care, it can be extremely difficult to provide it, causing frustration and worry for the carer. Finding a toothpaste that smells good can be the key to them accepting oral care

The mouthfeel of toothpaste may be a source of sensitivity for some.

For those who have carers providing their oral care, its invasive nature may be a real problem. For the carer, it’s difficult to second guess just how sensitive or sore someone else’s teeth, gums and mouth tissue actually feel.

When brushing teeth has become a challenge for someone, the state of their oral health can rapidly diminish and the interior of the mouth can quickly become very painful in response to touch

Switching to an electric toothbrush may prove difficult for anyone sensitive to the sensation of powerful rotation or vibration in their mouth. I’ve heard children say that they find electric toothbrushes make their head hurt.
