Dentin hypersensitivity is a common condition that is frequently encountered in dental practice. The goal of treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity ideally should be the restoration of the original impermeability of the dentinal tubules and the relief of dentinal hypersensitivity experienced by the patient or at least to reduce the level of discomfort to enable the patient's quality of life to be maintained. Bio-glass has the effectiveness of mineralization and infiltration of dentinal tubules. Laser treatment in dentin hypersensitivity is an interesting and controversial issue and many investigations have been done on its mechanism of action, advantages and unclear points. This novel treatment approach aims at the assimilation of both bioglass and laser in providing a viable treatment option for dentin hypersensitivity.
