Abstract

Arginine-containing toothpastes are a promising new treatment for dentin hypersensitivity (DH), which afflicts a considerable number of patients. However, there have to date been only individual studies. We aim to present an overview of the clinical evidence in order to determine trends and establish firmer conclusions regarding the use of arginine-containing toothpastes for management of DH.
