Everyday dentistry requires bonding. From direct composite restorations to indirect veneers, bonding plays an important role in every clinical practice. Many dentists report that their patients are still experiencing post-operative sensitivity after treatment. Sensitivity can be contributed to the bonding technique and/or the proper treatment of the dentin surface. In this 1-hour video, Dr. Nuñez will cover possible causes for post-operative sensitivity, and how to prevent it from happening.
- Understand the origin of post-operative sensitivity
