    Aim: This study aims to assess the prevalence of dentin hypersensitivity among general population. Objective: The objective of the study was to determine the prevalence of dentin hypersensitivity among general population. Background: Dentin hypersensitivity is characterized by short, sharp pain which results due to exposed dentin in response to stimuli. It often arises due to cold drinks, toothbrushing and sweet foods. The prevalence of dentin hypersensitivity is uncertain. Appropriate diagnosis and treatment of dentin hypersensitivity require accurate knowledge regarding its prevalence. Reason: Most of the patients do not seek any dental treatment for their dentin hypersensitivity as they do not perceive them to be a serious dental problem. The common path for dentin hypersensitivity is the activation of pulpal nerves. In dentistry, the major reasons for emergency dental visits are pain and discomfort. Thus, the aim of this cross-sectional study was to determine the prevalence, common causative factors, aggravating factors of dentin hypersensitivity. Conclusion: The study was very successful in assessing the prevalence of dentine hypersensitivity in the chosen demographic area and also clearly discussed the possible etiological factors which shows the prevalence of hypersensitivity in various parts of India.
