Dentin hypersensitivity: CURODONT™ D’SENZ shows faster desensitization than sensitivity toothpaste
In their study “Self-Assembling Peptide Matrix for treatment of dentin hypersensitivity: A randomized controlled clinical trial», Dr. M. Schlee and colleagues compared the ability of the CURODONT™ D’SENZ gel and a professional desensitizing toothpaste containing 8% arginine and calcium carbonate [ACC] to alleviate dentin hypersensitivity (DHS) over a period of 90 days.
CURODONT™ D’SENZ (test) was only applied within the first week, while the desensitizing toothpaste used as control was used throughout the whole 90 day study.
In a questionnaire investigating the desensitization effect in daily life, test group patients reported a significantly faster and higher satisfaction of 73% (day 3) and 80% (day 7) compared to 22% (day 3) or 32% (day 7) for CURODONT™ D’SENZ. In addition more pain-free patients at early timepoints were recorded for CURODONT™ D’SENZ.
In conclusion, an application of CURODONT™ D’SENZ for a week and the continued application of a desensitizing toothpaste were successful in giving relief from dentin hypersensitivity over the observed 90 days, yet, CURODONT™ D’SENZ resulted in higher patient satisfaction within the first week of the study and a higher number of pain free patients.
