OBJECTIVES The paper's aim is to review dentin hypersensitivity (DHS), discussing pain mechanisms and aetiology. MATERIALS AND METHODS Literature was reviewed using search engines with MESH terms, DH pain mechanisms and aetiology (including abrasion, erosion and periodontal disease). RESULTS The many hypotheses proposed for DHS attest to our lack of(More)
CONTEXT The gold standard treatment modality for dentine hypersensitivity has not yet been established. This review examines the effectiveness of self and professionally applied treatments for the reduction in pain from dentine hypersensitivity. MATERIALS AND METHODS Electronic (three databases) and hand searches were performed 14-21 July 2014 to identify(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to determine in situ the relative abilities of two desensitising toothpastes to occlude dentinal tubules with or without acid challenge. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study design was a single centre, randomised, split mouth crossover model examining four treatments over two periods. The primary outcome was the degree of(More)
OBJECTIVES Investigation of early enamel erosion using replica impressions to compare changes in enamel surface topography in vivo prior to and over a 24 h period following acid challenge. METHOD A single treatment, blinded, enamel replica clinical study was undertaken in 20 healthy subjects. Replica tooth impressions were taken at baseline, following(More)
OBJECTIVE The ability of a dentifrice containing the bioactive material calcium sodium phosphosilicate (CSPS) to remineralise the surface of dentine and physically occlude patent tubules was investigated in a 20 day in situ randomised clinical study. METHODS Changes in surface microhardness and surface topography of dentine specimens treated for 5, 10, 15(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the enamel protection efficacy of a stabilized stannous fluoride (SnF2 ) dentifrice to a sodium fluoride (NaF)/triclosan dentifrice following acidic erosive challenge. METHODS In this in situ, randomized, controlled, double-blind, two-treatment, four-period crossover clinical trial, subjects wore an appliance fitted with human enamel(More)
On behalf of all the ICACT2016 international conference committees, we would like to welcome all of you to ICACT2016. It is a great pleasure for us to host The ICACT is annual international conference in the communications field, where all experts from home and abroad come together to present their work, and share new ideas and visions for achieving the(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine if a stabilised, stannous-containing sodium fluoride dentifrice provides greater enamel protection in situ against intraoral dietary erosive challenges compared with a sodium fluoride/potassium nitrate dentifrice. METHODS A single-centre, investigator blind, randomised, supervised, two-treatment, non-brushing, four-period crossover(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the abrasive effect of the tongue on human enamel loss with and without a prior dietary acid challenge in an in situ model. METHODS A single centre, single blind, randomly allocated, split mouth, four treatment regimen, in situ study in healthy adult volunteers was undertaken. Twenty four subjects wore two lower intra-oral(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the enamel protection efficacy of stannous-containing sodium fluoride and sodium monofluorophosphate (MFP)/triclosan dentifrices marketed in India in an in situ erosion model with acidic challenge. MATERIALS AND METHODS This randomised and controlled, in situ, supervised, double-blind clinical trial employed a two-treatment,(More)
