Dentinal hypersensitivity is characterized by a short, sharp pain in response to various stimuli. It is more commonly seen in adults in the 20- to 40-year-oldage group, has several etiological factors. Gingival recession and enamel loss both contribute to the prevalence of this condition, resulting in the exposure of dentin. Dentinal hypersensitivity is believed to occur due to the movement of fluid within the dentinal tubules occuring in response to thermal, chemical, tactile and evaporative stimuli, in accordance with Brännström’s Hydrodynamic Theory. Treatment options include in-office procedures and home use, self-applied products that are aimed at either occluding he dentinal tubules or preventing neural transmission and there by blocking the pain response.
