Description

The increasing life span of the average person is resulting in patients who will need dental health care for a longer period of time. Gingival recession is a condition that is known to worsen with age and its part in dentinal hypersensitivity cannot be ignored. When a patient presents with dentinal hypersensitivity, dental professionals have an obligation to provide well-considered recommendations for treatment. Areas discussed will include the diagnosis of the disease, factors contributing to dentinal hypersensitivity, and reviewing and choosing the correct course of treatment. (Sponsored in part by an educational grant from Colgate.)

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the dental professional should be able to:
Objective 1:
Understand the changing demographics of patients and their growing needs for dental care — be it treatment of caries and periodontal diseases, failures of existing restorations, tooth sensitivity, or other conditions.
Objective 2:
Understand the causes and effects of dentinal hypersensitivity as it relates to the physiology of teeth and patient discomfort.
Objective 3:
List the steps of protocol when assessing a treatment plan for a patient with dentinal hypersensitivity, and understand how the treatment effectively resolves the patient’s pain.
Objective 4:
Realize there are different forms of treatment for each patient — in the office or at home.
