Abstract A review of the literature on treatment of dentin hypersensitivity by use of fluorides and fluoride iontophoresis was presented. It was concluded that topical applications of fluoride are modestly effective for treatment of dentin hypersensitivity, but the most rapid and effective relief follows fluoride iontophoresis. This technique has a broad application in dental practice since fluoride iontophoresis was shown to be an effective desenitizer in cavity preparation, before cementation of restorations, and in cases of occlusal wear and enamel hypoplasia. The report also presents a new and effective method for the iontophoresis of fluoride for dentin desensitization.
