Dentin Hypersensitivity: Current Concepts in the Management of a Common Problem
This course will discuss the factors contributing to dentin hypersensitivity, types of pain stimuli and pain impulse conduction theories while providing clinical evidence supporting over-the counter and professionally applied desensitizing agents.
- Identify the types of pain stimuli which elicit hypersensitive reactions
- Understand the ways in which desensitization agents act to decrease sensitivity
- Evaluate treatment options to plan for evidenced based in-office treatment and at home therapies for a patient to control or treat hypersensitivity
