A clinical trial which is randomized was carried out to
examine the successfulness of three agents which
reduces the Dentinal Hypersensitivity (DH).
Materials and Methods:
A total of 90 vital teeth, was distributed separately into
3 groups in accordance with response to cold air blast
and stimuli which is tactile : Group 1: treated with 10%
Propolis varnish, Group 2: treated with Diode laser (970
nm), and Group 3: treated with combination of 10%
propolis varnish and diode laser. Various measuring
scales were used to assess patients response towards
these 3 techniques. The baseline scores were obtained.
The patients were evaluated at 30 min for immediate
effect, 7th day for intermediate effect, 21st day for late
effect and scores were recorded.
Pain reduction was observed in all the 3 groups. The
VAS, NRS, VDS scores were determined, and found
that statistically significant reduction of Dentinal
Hypersensitivity in Group 3 than Group 2 and Group 1.
10% propolis varnish is used along with diode laser was
seen to be statistically significant difference in
decreasing the dentinal hypersensitivity as compared to
