Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of diode laser & desensitizing agents to overcome hypersensitizing root surfaces problem after periodontal treatment. 20 patients(60 teeth) presented were volunteered in this study. Diode laser & MS coat was respectively applied on hypersensitizing root surfaces after periodontal treatments. Following application, they were evaluated immediately. The results were as follows: 1. The frequency and degree of root surface hypersensitivity levels were measured by the sequence of tactile and air stream. 2. Reduction of root surfaces hypersensitivity by tactile were for Diode laser and Ms coat application respectively 3.0294+/-2.0224 and 3.2692+/-1.6139. 3. Reduction of root surfaces hypersensitivity by air stream were for Diode laser and Ms coat application respectively 3.0294+/-2.0224 and 3.2692+/-1.6139. 4. It could be said that Diode Laser and Ms coat application were significantly effective in reducing dentin hypersensitivity as far as concerned effect, Ms coat applicatio showed more effective than Diode laser. In conclusion, both methods were significantly effective in reducing dentinal hypersensitivity. Therefore, it was recommended that Diode laser and desensitizing agents could be used routinely for patients dentinal hypersensitivity following periodontal treatment.
