Sometimes the pace of a dental appointment feels like you are moving at the speed of light. After a health history review, X-rays and cleaning, a dentist’s individual time with a patient can be limited. We must be ready to use the valuable moments we have for patient empowerment and education.
Dentin hypersensitivity affects the enjoyment of daily activities and quality of life, and many patients aren’t aware that it is a manageable condition. As dental professionals, we can be at the forefront of patient education and management of dentin hypersensitivity, and make positive changes to the lives of our patients.
