OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to analyze dentinal surfaces that were exposed to acidic beverages, then treated with Nd:YAG laser and afterwards exposed to acidic beverages again. BACKGROUND DATA Dentin hypersensitivity can result from surface erosion caused by acidic beverages, which exposes and enlarges the dentinal tubules. Nd:YAG laser has been used as a treatment option. METHODS Sixty-eight dentin samples were prepared and assigned to five groups: G1, control (n = 4); G2, 3-h… CONTINUE READING
