Background: This study compared the effectiveness of in-office and at home treatments for cervical dentine sensitivity (CDS) from non-carious cervical lesions.
Methods: Sixty participants with CDS were selected and randomly allocated into six groups of treatment: LA: gallium aluminium arsenide laser and LP: laser-placebo (4 in-office sessions); RMGI: resin-modified glass-ionomer and ARC: adhesive resin cement (in-office single session); DD: stannous fluoride desensitizing dentifrice and RD: regular dentifrice (30 days at home-use). CDS was assessed with the visual analogue scale at pre-treatment, immediately after treatment and at 1, 2 weeks, 1 and 2 months after the end of treatment. Data were compared using the Kruskal-Wallis and Friedman tests (p < 0.05).
Results: All treatments, except ARC, showed a significant CDS reduction at different times when compared to pre-treatment (p < 0.05). Resin-modified glass-ionomer, showed statistical differences (p < 0.05) when compared to LA, LP and ARC groups immediately after treatment. Dentifrices (desensitizing and regular) showed statistical differences (p < 0.05) immediately after the 30 days of use.
Conclusion: All strategies, except ARC, were capable to reduce CDS at different times and maintain the relief up two months. Resin-modified glass-ionomers and dentifrices were the most effective strategies in reducing CDS just after the end of the proposed treatment.
