THE EFFECT OF DIODE DENTAL LASER ON DENTINAL TUBULE OCCLUSION – A TREATMENT MODALITY FOR DENTINAL HYPERSENSITIVITY
Dentinal hypersensitivity (DH) is characterized by a short, sharp, pain of rapid onset arising from exposed dentin in response to thermal, osmotic, mechanical or chemical stimuli that cannot be attributed to any other form of dental disease or defect. The prevalence of Dentinal hypersensitivity range from 4 to 73 percentages with highest occurrence in 20yr to 40 yr age group and with incisors, canine and premolars being the most commonly affected teeth.1 Its occurrence seems to be the consequence of the presence of open dentinal tubules on exposed dentinal surfaces.
