Dr Siddhi Yadav, Dr Soumya Ojha

AIM The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of three dentinal hypersensitivity agents in reduction of dentin hypersensitivity among patients. MATERIALS AND METHODOLOGY 15 patients, were evaluated among which at least 4 teeth had dentin hypersensitivity, was randomly allocated into 4 treatment groups Group I Colgate pro relief, Group II GC tooth mousse, Group III novamin (shy-nm), Group IV distal water as a placebo control.A Verbal Rating Scale (VRS) was used to record the degree of hypersensitivity, based on patients response to tactile and air blast stimuli. The baseline scores were obtained. Each intervention group received applications of their respective agents consecutively on 1st, 7th and 21st days. After each application, the scores were recorded. Results All three group showed significant reductions in dentin hypersensitivity. Conclusion GC tooth mousse was found to be significantly better in reducing the dentinal hypersensitivity as compared to Colgate pro relief, novamin (shy-nm) and distal water.
