Tooth hypersensitivity is characterized by non-specific or specific, intermittent or continuous transient and sharp pain which is originated from exposed detain as a response to external stimulations like chemical thermal dehydrating or tactile stimulations. Most of the patients reports hypersensitivity after preparation of vital teeth for the fixed prosthesis which is due to the connection between external environment and dental pulp causing movement of intratubular fluid and stimulation of pulpal nerve. The removal of enamel and reduction of detain thickness further results in increased detain permeability and pulp irritability.
