3,4,26,27) In current analysis, hypersensitive teeth were evaluated using a tactile test with a sharp dental explorer
and an evaporative stimulus via an air blast from a dental air syringe.
All readings are taken using Periodontal probe, Dental mirror and Dental explorer
The examination was carried out in a lighted room, using a disposable mirrolite (Kudos, Yuen Long, Hong Kong) and dental explorer
Useful diagnostic tools are the air/water syringe (thermal), dental explorer
(touch), percussion testing, bite stress tests, and other thermal tests such as an ice cube and assessment of occlusion.
Examiners were instructed to use a very light touch when using the dental explorer
to avoid causing cavitation with aggressive probing.
