Patient Stories: Thank You Dentist

Dentine Hypersensitivity Experience Study
Up to 1 in 3 patients may suffer from sensitivity1 but may not recognize there is a solution for it or even want to talk to you about it.1
The Dentine Hypersensitivity Experience Questionnaire (DHEQ) offers in-depth insight into patient experiences by looking at the everyday impact sensitivity can have on quality of life.2-4
Patients may adopt various habits to cope with sensitivity, including changing the way they eat and drink. Up to 80% of them will try to avoid contact between triggers and certain teeth. But despite this, they may not seek a solution.2
This is often because patients are not aware that this is a common problem and it can be managed simply.
Sensodyne has many years of experience working with leading experts in the field of sensitivity and we want to help make a difference to the daily comfort and overall quality of life of your patients. To read more about the full impact of sensitivity, download the DHEQ Study Report below.
