I usually use teflon tape, but take an ohm meter and measure between the sensor body and the block to make sure the ground is in tact. Usually the sensors are installed tight enough (not too tight) to break through the tape and make contact with ground.

If you are really worried that you may not have a good ground or contact, use the liquid type teflon for pipe threads. Works great.
