    Background: Dentine hypersensitivity is a relatively common problem experienced in clinical dental practice. Aim: To evaluate the efficacy of diode laser alone in comparison with Biodentine +diode laser in the management of dentinal hypersensitivity. Material and methods: A total of 20 patients (90 teeth) with a clinical diagnosis of dentin hypersensitivity were included in this clinical trial. Dentin sensitivity was assessed in response to an air blast stimulus using Schiff cold air sensitivity scale before treatment, 15 min, 2 weeks, and 1 month after the first application. The teeth were randomly divided into two groups. In the first group was treated with diode laser (45 teeth), the second one was treated with Biodentine combination with diode laser (45 teeth). Results: Subjects had treated with Biodentine irradiated with diode laser showed statistically lower (p < 0.05) dentin.. Read More»
