Provides an introduction to Dentine Hypersensitivity, and uses a multidisciplinary approach to detail interdisciplinary research on the subject. Outlines the clinical presentation of Dentine Hypersensitivity and the underlying physiological mechanisms. Presents a case study of how social and behavioral science can bright new insights into the experience, treatment, and fundamental knowledge of an important dental condition.
