Studies show that more than 40,000,000 Americans suffer from dentinal hypersensitivity. New Seal & Protect™ protective sealant for exposed dentin from Dentsply Caulk offers the dentist and patient a long-term solution. Seal & Protect™ can be applied every six months, which means the patient`s comfort can last for the entire period between office visits. Seal & Protect™ provides a polymerized layer mechanically reinforcing the dentin to protect against erosion. It blocks and covers dentinal tubules on the root surface to effectively treat hypersensitivity in cervical areas, exposed roots, and around temporary crowns. The procedure also is insurance-reimbursable by some insurance plans under the 9911 code.
