The onset of a sharp and painful response to external stimuli, or dentinal hypersensitivity, is common among patients who have undergone periodontal therapy. In order to best serve patients, clinicians need to remain up to date on preventive therapies and treatment options to address patient discomfort. The relationship between periodontal treatment and resulting sensitivity is explored in the continuing education (CE) article “Strategies for Dentinal Hypersensitivity Management” (page 45). This CE article— developed in partnership with the American Academy of Periodontology and sponsored by Colgate— discusses strategies on how to prevent, treat, and manage dentinal hypersensitivity. It is authored by Mia L. Geisinger, DDS, MS, an associate professor and director of the Advanced Education Program in Periodontology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
