Aim: Dentine hypersensitivity (DH) is characterized by a short, sharp pain arising
from exposed dentin. Most published literature reports on peripheral neural
aspects of this pain condition. The current investigation focused on differential

Materials and Methods: Five graded stimulus strengths were randomly applied by
means of a multi-injector air jet delivery system, each...
