Dental hypersensitivity is an episodic condition that is increasing in prevalence and is a consequence of the 21st century lifestyle. Surprisingly, a majority of patients do not actively seek treatment to desensitize their teeth, instead adopting coping behaviors, such as avoidance of cold foods and drinking through straws. Effective prevention and management of dentin hypersensitivity requires a continuum of care. The objective of this course is to provide the dental health professional with a continuous care strategy for identifying and meeting the treatment needs of patients suffering from hypersensitive dentin.
