Efficacy of strontium chloride in dental hypersensitivity

Abstract:
Controlled stimuli were used to evaluate a commercially available dentifrice containing 10% strontium chloride hexahydrate for efficacy in alleviating the symptoms of uncomplicated dentinal hypersensitivity. Sixty-one subjects with hypersensitivity were included in the 12-week, double-blind, parallel, comparative (placebo) study. Levels of hypersensitivity in affected teeth were assessed by three methods: thermally controlled cold air […]

Controlled clinical evaluation of a 10% strontium chloride dentifrice in treatment of dentin hypersensitivity following periodontal surgery

Abstract:
Sixty adult patients were examined for dentin hypersensitivity prior to periodontal surgery. Stimuli used included mechanical, cold water and compressed air blasts. A subjective assessment of the degree of hypersensitivity for each stimulus was recorded. This presurgical examination revealed 249 hypersensitive areas among 60 subjects. Following surgery there was over a 100% increase in […]
