To Evaluate the Efficacy of an Experimental Dissolvable Strip in Rapidly Relieving Dentinal Hypersensitivity (DH)

2016-10-19 02:38:21 | BioPortfolio


A proof of principle single-centre, randomized-controlled, examiner-blind, two treatment group study to investigate the efficacy of an experimental 15% w/w dissolvable strip in relieving dentine hypersensitivity (DH) after a single application and up to 4 hours after application compared to no treatment.


This will be a single-centre, randomized-controlled, examiner-blind, two treatment group (test and no treatment), parallel design, stratified (by maximum baseline Schiff sensitivity score of the two selected test teeth) study, in healthy participants with at least two sensitive teeth that meet all the criteria at the screening and the baseline pre-treatment visit. DH will be assessed at baseline (pre-treatment), and 10mins, 2 & 4 hours post-treatment.

Exploratory Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of an Occlusion Based Dentifrice in Relief of Dentinal Hypersensitivity

The purpose of this exploratory study is to compare the treatment effect on dentinal hypersensitivity of a tubule occluding dentifrice as measured by Schiff and Tactile sensitivity. This p...

Clinical Efficacy in Relieving Dentin Hypersensitivity of Nanohydroxyapatite-Containing Toothpastes and Cream

This study will investigate the effectiveness of nanohydroxyapatite (nano-HAP)-containing toothpastes and cream to relieve dentin hypersensitivity, comparing it with those of a commercial ...

Effectiveness of Arginin and Potassium Nitrate Dentifrices in Dentin Hypersensitivity Therapy

Introduction: Dentin hypersensitivity (DH) could be defined as a brief and sharp pain in response to thermical, chemical, tactile and osmotic stimuli, which cannot be attributed to any den...

Effect of Photodynamic Therapy on Deep Caries in Permanent Tooth,A Controlled Clinical Trial

The aim of the proposed study is to assess the clinical effect of photodynamic therapy (PDT)using LED on dentin with carious lesions in permenent teeth. Patients with molars exhibiting dee...

Use of Biomaterials as Desensitizer Agents

Aim: to investigate the clinical effectiveness over 12 weeks of three different biomaterials, nano-hydroxyapatite based, in the therapy of the dental sensitivity. Methods: The study is de...

Ions Release and pH of Calcium Hydroxide-, Chlorhexidine- and Bioactive Glass-Based Endodontic Medicaments.

This study evaluated pH and release of calcium, sodium and phosphate ions from different medications in human dentin. Fifty premolars were prepared and randomly divided into groups: (CHX) - 2% chlorhe...

Bonding Effectiveness of Universal Adhesive to Intracoronal Bleached Dentin Treated with Sodium Ascorbate.

This study evaluated the effect of restorative protocol with sodium ascorbate on the shear bond strength (SBS) of a universal adhesive to intracoronal bleached dentin. One hundred-and-twenty bovine de...

Privileged crosstalk between TRPV1 channels and mitochondrial calcium shuttling machinery controls nociception.

The nociceptive noxious heat-activated receptor - TRPV1, conducts calcium and sodium, thus producing a depolarizing receptor potential, leading to activation of nociceptive neurons. TRPV1-mediated cal...

The Retentive Strength of Cemented Zirconium Oxide Crowns after Dentin Pretreatment with Desensitizing Paste Containing 8% Arginine and Calcium Carbonate.

The effect of dentin pretreatment with Desensitizing Paste containing 8% arginine and calcium carbonate on the retention of zirconium oxide (Y-TZP) crowns was tested. Forty molar teeth were mounted an...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Adherent debris produced when cutting the enamel or dentin in cavity preparation. It is about 1 micron thick and its composition reflects the underlying dentin, although different quantities and qualities of smear layer can be produced by the various instrumentation techniques. Its function is presumed to be protective, as it lowers dentin permeability. However, it masks the underlying dentin and interferes with attempts to bond dental material to the dentin.

An serine-threonine protein kinase that requires the presence of physiological concentrations of CALCIUM and membrane PHOSPHOLIPIDS. The additional presence of DIACYLGLYCEROLS markedly increases its sensitivity to both calcium and phospholipids. The sensitivity of the enzyme can also be increased by PHORBOL ESTERS and it is believed that protein kinase C is the receptor protein of tumor-promoting phorbol esters.

An electrogenic ion exchange protein that maintains a steady level of calcium by removing an amount of calcium equal to that which enters the cells. It is widely distributed in most excitable membranes, including the brain and heart.

An apparently hereditary disorder of dentin formation, marked by a normal appearance of coronal dentin associated with pulpal obliteration, faulty root formation, and a tendency for peripheral lesions without obvious cause. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
