Understanding Sensitivity
Hypersensitivity

Help your patients with sensitivity go back to enjoying what they love

Dentinal hypersensitivity is pain that occurs when dentin is exposed along the gumline due to receding gums. As a result, tiny tubules that lead to the tooth nerve are unprotected, leading to nerve stimulation and pain.

Almost 60% of adults suffer from dentinal hypersensitivity.1 They may not understand what causes their pain, but they understand the inconvenience of avoiding its triggers. Addressing patients tooth sensitivity can help them get back to their normal healthy eating habits.
