Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of Nd: YAG laser in the therapy of hypersensitive teeth. Material and methods: The study consisted 43 individuals of both sexes at the age 26 – 54. Out of all 58 teeth with diagnosis of hypersensitivity - 48 teeth were at the teeth necks and 10 of them at the ocllussal surface. Nd:YAG laser irradiation was used with adequate treatment protocol in three visits depending of the subjective symptomatology. Laser irradiation was applied on the teeth’s gingival third with the fiber – optic hand piece. The distance between the fiber and the target tissue was 1.5mm, the whole neck surface of the teeth was exposed with slow motions in a period of 60s and the procedure was repeated 3 times per session.
