Correct oral hygiene instructions: proper brushing technique and using a low abrasive toothpaste. Along with these, it is important to use desensitizing agents to treat tooth sensitivity. The vast majority of ambulatory use products to treat tooth sensitivity including potassium salts in its composition, desensitizing agents which penetrate into the pulp through the open dentin tubules and nerve transmission act inhibiting the pain produced. These also include, in certain cases fluorides that may act partially plugging the dentinal tubules. A revolution in the treatment of tooth sensitivity for the complete sealing of the dentinal tubules has been the use of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles incorporated in innovative technology. Hydroxyapatite nanoparticles are at a concentration suitable size, which allows them deposited on the surface of enamel, sealing dentinal tubules have been exposed and thus preventing transmission of the external stimulus that produces pain. Also form a protective layer resistant to washing, from the first application. If tooth sensitivity is treated daily with suitable products which causes the painful sensation is avoided and may recover in normal teeth and gums.
