Dr. Maya S. Indurkar, Dr. Arati S. Maurya

Abstract :

Aim: To compare the efficacy of Diode laser and 1.23% APF gel iontophoresis for the treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity. Material and Method: This is a randomized split mouth clinical study. Subjects of age group above 18 years with complain of hypersensitivity in atleast 2 teeth were included in the study. The sensitivity was verified with tactile test, air blast test and cold water test, response to these stimuli were recorded on a verbal rating scale 0–3. A total 30 sites were randomly divided into two groups; Group A (15 sites) — 980nm Diode Laser and Group B (15 sites) — 1.23% APF gel iontophoresis. The teeth were re–evaluated immediately 15min after the treatment, at the end of 1 week and 1month. Conclusion: Both the treatment modalities were equally effective and can be effectively used for the treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity
