Dentine hypersensitivity is often hard to diagnose and its prevalence may be far greater than commonly thought, severely impacting the quality of life of many people.

During this dental webinar, several highly regarded clinical experts will explore the many challenges faced in the management of dentine hypersensitivity in a clinical setting, from diagnosis to causation, and including how to engage with patients to optimise treatment at home. One of the hardest aspects of oral health is behavioral change and our panel will discuss connecting with patients regarding improving their diet and brushing technique.

Transitioning to solutions and treatment, practical tools will be presented by our experts, providing clinical ‘take-aways’ for use by dental professionals in practice for effective management of DH. These include sharing an established ‘diagnosis test’ and ‘treatment path’.

Learning Content Aims and Objectives

  • Review the prevalence of dentine hypersensitivity and its impact on patients’ quality of life
  • Understand the current challenges clinicians face in managing dentine hypersensitivity
  • Identify solutions and practical tools to treat dentine hypersensitivity
