Dentine hypersensitivity and gentle dental care

Dentinal hypersensitivity is very frequent in the European adult population and it is reported to be prevalent among periodontal patients. Sensitive teeth result from exposed dentinal tubules, most often due to gingival recession and loss of cementum through erosion, abrasion, or other factors. Brännström’s hydrodynamic theory is broadly accepted as explaining the tooth sensitivity. Sensitive teeth pain occurs when the dentin surface is exposed to stimuli (e.g., thermal, tactile) that provoke fluid movement in the tubules.
Desensitizing dentifrices are commonly used to treat and prevent teeth sensitivity.
