Dentine hypersensitivity

As many as one in three patients may be suffering from dentine hypersensitivity (DH). Research using the DHEQ amongst over 900 people highlighted the impacts that patients with the condition may experience:

• 70% consider the sensations to take the pleasure out of eating and drinking
• 59% try to avoid pain by biting food into small pieces
• 32% think that having sensitive teeth makes them feel old.

The pooled analysis of seven clinical studies involving 905 participants aged 18-65 (mean 39.7 years) in Canada, Europe and USA before treatment. All participants who gave the ratings of five, six or seven (agree a little, agree, strongly agree) on a seven-point impact scale were considered to have the impact in question.
