Tooth sensitivity is a very common problem experienced by millions of people. Tooth sensitivity can be transient or long lasting.  

This exciting and unique hands-on course will start with the theory and scientific process covering the causes of sensitivity. It will discuss how a full history of the patient is taken to include diet and social history, then an intraoral examination with x-rays and pictures to include recession charting and BEWE scores. It will then assess sensitivity treatments available and the treatment we can provide to our patients.

The hands-on part of the course will look at:

  • How to use Riva GIC (resin modified glass ionomer restorations) to cover recession and abrasion cavities that have exposed dentine. With a step by step process on tooth models to restore and get aesthetically pleasing results.
  • Using SDF as a sensitivity treatment
  • Using aligners/whitening trays to how to administer Pola Soothe
  • The use of therapeutic trays for soothing and healing the mouth
  • The use of proprietary soothing products, toothpastes, mousses, conditioners and adjunctive products eg toothpastes

Each course delegate will be sent a specially prepared dental hamper, with a tooth model, dental materials and disposable instruments to undertake the hands- on component. Each delegate will need to provide their own curing light and their own PPE. Delegates will be sent a tray set-up to prepare beforehand for the course.

Places are limited to 20

The introduction of NovaMin advanced technology makes Sensodyne the only desensitising agent using hydroxyapatite, calcium and phosphate to build a layer over the surface of teeth.
