Cervical dentine hypersensitivity is a common problem. When gingiva recession has appeared the root cement can become abraded by several causes and this situation can give pain problems when the tubules do not close. The most important part of the treatment is a good diagnosis and to find and eliminate the predisposing factors. After this has been done it is possible to try to close the dentinal tubulus for which there are several treatments. It is difficult to give a good advice for the treatment of cervical dentine hypersensitivity because research in this field is difficult due to the large amount of variables, the placebo effect and because the lack of a good experimental model.
