Tooth sensitivity is a very common problem experienced by millions of people. Tooth sensitivity can be transient or long lasting. Whilst some strategies many include the use of desensitising toothpastes for patients, this webinar will present a comprehensive approach and new options for treating tooth sensitivity for all ages. 

The webinar will cover the common causes of sensitivity, sensitivity management strategies for different aetiology, such as management of sensitive teeth during whitening, sensitivity associated with tooth wear, sensitivity due to dental disease (including caries and MIH) and sensitivity post periodontal surgery. We will also discuss taking a comprehensive history and examination including BEWE scores and recession. 


To provide delegates with a theory-based knowledge on sensitivity management and the treatments involved.

Learning objectives 

  • Understand common causes of sensitivity
  • Identify the treatments available for sensitivity 
  • Learn how to provide your patients with suitable strategies for sensitivity treatments.

Learning content

A one-hour presentation with the chance to ask the speaker questions at the end of the webinar.

​Dentine Hypersensitivity affects as many as 1 in 3 people and is a common and often underdiagnosed condition described as a short, sharp pain arising from exposed dentine in response to a stimulus, which cannot be attributed to any other form of dental defect or pathology.1  Since the launch of Sensodyne Toothpaste in 1963 it is now the #1 Dentist recommended brand for sensitive teeth* providing care for millions of patients with a range of clinically proven products and technologies.

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. Sensodyne Repair and Protect Deep Repair with NovaMin helps restore a new layer over exposed dentine to protect from pain.2
