Laser Treatment For Dentin Hypersensitivity
Laser treatment achieves recrystallization of dentin, producing a nonporous surface that partially or totally obliviates dentinal tubules and affects the neural transmission through coagulation of proteins in the dentinal fluid and hence reduces permeability and blocks fluid movement.
The laser-assisted treatment of dentine hypersensitivity is a good method to solve immediate and long-term pain. Compared to conventional desensitizing topical agents, laser treatment leads to rapid results with shorter treatment time and increased comfort for the patient. Fluoride gel or desensitizing substances used in combination with laser light can enhance the effects.
