Objectives: The aim of the present study was to review the published literature in order to identify relevant studies for inclusion and to determine whether there was any evidence on the clinical effectiveness of selected desensitizing toothpastes, calcium sodium phosphosilicate, amorphous calcium phosphate, nanohydroxyapatite and casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (tooth mousse) on reducing dentine hypersensitivity.
