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.

    I must confess, I’ve never experienced a zinger, but I’ve been reading about them lately and can state unequivocally that I never want to. Never! Undoubtedly, you’ve had some of your whitening patients tell you about experiencing sudden, intense unexpected pain. They may have described it as a “lightning bolt” or “electric shock.” For years,...

    Has it really been 10 years since KöR Whitening was launched? I remember when we in the dental media first started hearing about KöR—and its founder and whitening science expert Dr. Rod Kurthy—in press events and at dental meetings. It seemed to me then, and it still does today, that by understanding the science behind the importance of...

In a nutshell, rather than just clogging up open dentinal tubules, like other oxalate desensitizing products, KöR Complete reacts with and bonds to the hydroxyapatite...
