Desensitizers CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

Whether thermal, evaporative, tactile, osmotic, or chemical, dentin hypersensitivity is one of most common—and most unsuccessfully resolved—pain-related oral conditions.

 

While patients with generalized dentin sensitivity can often find relief with the use of desensitizing toothpastes, an isolated in-office approach may be indicated for those with localized sensitivity. Most agents used for such treatment are intended to seal the dentin surface or occlude dentinal tubules via protein precipitation or calcium complex formation, suppressing dentinal tubular fluid movement. Fluid flow reduction has been achieved with many agents that act as surface blockers or create a new smear layer, and include fluoride varnishes, dentin bonding agents, glass ionomer cements, and composite resins.

 

Newer anti-sensitivity agents include those formulated with arginine and an insoluble calcium carbonate, which forms crystals to block the tubules with two applications. A polishing paste containing NovaMin enables blockage of tubules for immediate sensitivity relief, making routine prophylaxis therapeutic.

    Aha! So, rapid fluid movement within the dentin tubules is the culprit that causes teeth to be sensitive to thermal, evaporative, tactile, osmotic, and chemical stimuli.

    Most people experience tooth sensitivity at some point in their lives. It can be a reaction to heat or cold. It can be triggered by tooth brushing. It may be the result of whitening (professional or on your own). It could be a consequence of gum recession. Either way, it’s not fun, especially if it’s not transient. A variety of approaches can be...

    Researchers have found that a naturally occurring amino acid found in some foods - including red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products - breaks down plaque and could help millions of people avoid cavities and gum disease. Arginine, already used in desensitizing products and toothpastes like Colgate’s Pro-Relief, breaks down dental plaque...
