Brain activation induced by dentine hypersensitivity pain–an fMRI study

submitted by: mike214
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 cerebral activity elicited by stimulation of sensitive and insensitive teeth by means of natural air stimuli.

There is an unmet medical need for drugs to treat chronic pain and inhibitors of
selective sodium channels are in development as novel analgesics.
