Pain Control in Dentin Hypersensitivity in Patients With MIH

2020-02-17 18:20:51 | BioPortfolio


This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of different protocols in controlling dentin hypersensitivity in patients with teeth affected by MIH. The subjects will be randomly designated in four experimental groups, according to different treatments. Pain will be assessed with the visual analog scale (Visual Analogue Scale - VAS), after stimulation with air from the triple syringe and and an exploratory probe at the time of (initial) recruitment, immediately after treatment, after 1 week and 1 month, 3 and 6 months after treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A procedure to increase the flow of blood to the MYOCARDIUM by creating transmural channels in the heart wall via the application of laser pulses to epicardial or endocardial surfaces.

Epicutaneous or intradermal application of a sensitizer for demonstration of either delayed or immediate hypersensitivity. Used in diagnosis of hypersensitivity or as a test for cellular immunity.

Somatosensory evoked potentials generated through the application of HEAT to the SKIN with a LASER. They are often used clinically to assess the function of the central nociceptive system and in diagnosing NOCICEPTIVE PAIN.

Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.

An application that must be submitted to a regulatory agency (the FDA in the United States) before a drug can be studied in humans. This application includes results of previous experiments; how, where, and by whom the new studies will be conducted; the chemical structure of the compound; how it is thought to work in the body; any toxic effects found in animal studies; and how the compound is manufactured. (From the "New Medicines in Development" Series produced by the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association and published irregularly.)
