Aim: The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence and causes of post-cementation hypersensitivity as well the potential prevention through the experience of dentists in private dental offices in our country. Materials and methods: 20 dental offices from Eastern Macedonia were included in the study. A specific self-reported questionnaire to collect information from dental practitioners was also implemented in the study. Statistical analysis was performed by using paired sample t-test from Statistical software SPSS for Windows version 23. A p-value < 0.05 was considered as statistically significant. Results: We registered that the most frequent reason for post-cementation hypersensitivity was the amount of tooth preparation and consequently the time between preparation and cementation, premature contacts in occlusion and tooth preparation under low volume water spray. Conclusion:The use of antimicrobial, desensitizing, resin bonding, varnishes, type of liner material and rotary instruments was considered to be less effective for prevention of post- cementation sensitivity according to respondents to the questionnaire. According to the dentists included in this study the best prevention of post-cementation sensitivity is smaller tooth reduction, preparation under high volume spray and to provide quality of provisional restorations. Keywords Preparation, post- cementation, sensitivity, tooth reduction.
