The pain of sensitive teeth can prevent your patients from either keeping their routine appointments or accepting treatment. How to you get the edge for your patients? By identifying what today’s options are so you can give them their best results.

In this free on-demand webinar with America’s Dental Hygienist, Anastasia Turchetta, you’ll receive guidance and tips on how to do this.

It is routinely hard to manage tooth sensitivity in dental patients for various reasons, Turchetta says. What some may consider a No. 10 level of pain, others may consider No. 3-there’s no perfect range from patient to patient.

“That can make it really hard to determine, ‘OK, what type of product do I use?’”

During the webinar, Turchetta will teach you:

  • How to determine the severity of sensitivity;

  • How to discover the purpose of different dental ingredients;

  • How to discuss professional desensitizers vs. OTC; and

  • How to establish a time frame for chair side application.

For more on what is covered in the webinar, Turchetta recently sat down with Kevin Henry, content director for Advanstar Dental Media, to preview the event. Learn more about the webinar from the interview below.
