Dentinal hypersensitivity is a common dental condition that affects approximately 57% of the general population. Dentinal hypersensitivity can be caused by a variety of factors; however, one cause often overlooked or simply ignored is improper manual and ultrasonic instrumentation. The good news is clinical management of dentinal hypersensitivity is possible.

This course will explore effective stroke dynamics to reduce the incidence of dentinal hypersensitivity caused by improper instrumentation. A thorough discussion of treatment options to address patient discomfort pre and post debridement will be had. The course will conclude with a live demonstration of basic instrumentation techniques that promotes conservation of tooth structure and patient comfortability during instrumentation procedures.

Learning Objectives:
- Identify the clinical signs and symptoms of dentinal hypersensitivity
- Review causes of dentin exposure
- Examine basic instrumentation techniques that facilitate effective, comfortable, and patient-centered care
- Explore treatment modalities that address patient comfort per and post periodontal debridement
