Comparative Effectiveness of Two Desensitizing Products in Dental Cervical Erosions

The aim of this clinical study was to investigate the comparative effectiveness of two dental desensitisers based on 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (Gluma desensitizer and Shield activ desensitizer), in decreasing the dentinal painful sensitivity caused by cervical erosions.The clinical trial consisted of 63 patients (323 teeth), with minimum three teeth which presented cervical erosion with dentinal hypersensitivity. The sensitive teeth were treated with Gluma Desensitizer-Heraeus Kulzer (first batch of teeth), Shield activ desensitiser (second batch) and distilled water (third batch of teeth=control group). We effectuated in total three desensitisation sessions, at 5 days difference. The level of cervical dentinal hypersensitivity (CDH) was determined in six sessions, after the patient’s response to air-blast stimuli. We used the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) to assess the CDH. The results proved the effectiveness of used desensitizing agents in treating CDH in the first and the second batch of teeth, in comparison with the control group teeth. We noticed that after the second application of Gluma and Shield products significant differences, in comparison with the baseline, appeared. After 3 month follow-up, we ascertained that both products induced the decreasing of CDH. No significant differences were recorded between the two products. A placebo effect in reduction of CDH was observed in the group of teeth treated with distilled water. Both dentin desensitizing agents have proven effective in reducing CDH.
