Dental Materials, Desensitizer

Definition : Dental materials consisting of gels, solutions, or creams that are used to prevent tooth sensitivity that arises from exposed dentin due to gingiva recession, enamel loss, dry mouth (xerostomia), or dental procedures or injuries. Desensitizers can be applied to all dentin surfaces, including cavity, crown, and cervical areas. They can also be placed under dental elements such as amalgam restorations, adhesive-composite restorations, or dental prostheses. They can be applied before or after tooth bleaching, scaling or root planning, or other dental procedures that may expose dentin. Desensitizers can be made of hydroxyethyl methacrylate or hydroxyapatite, and can include glutaraldehyde and/or fluoride. Desensitizers form plugs or crystals that seal dentinal tubules and cracks in the enamel when applied to the dentin and/or enamel surface, thereby blocking the exposed dentin and relieving pain.
