Dentine hypersensitivity: Overview
A common and often underdiagnosed condition, dentine hypersensitivity is described as a short, sharp sensation arising from exposed dentine in response to a stimulus, which cannot be attributed to any other form of dental defect or pathology.1
People who suffer from dentine hypersensitivity report a significant impact on their quality of life, experiencing sensitivity while eating, drinking, brushing their teeth and breathing cold air.2 Although dentine hypersensitivity can be managed, many people avoid discussing the condition with their dentist.3
