Dentine has been shown to possess affinity for a large number of varied compounds, many of which have been shown effective in clinical trials, for the treatment of dentine hypersensitivity. The mode of action of these compounds is unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the uptake of metal ions, fluoride and formaldehyde in solution onto dentine in vitro and determine whether therapeutic effects could be mediated through occlusion of dentinal tubules. Etched dentine sections were… CONTINUE READING
