Abstract
Dentin hypersensitivity is a common clinical condition and age-old complaint, presenting problems to both the patient and the dentist. Besides causing discomfort, the condition may deter a person from establishing or maintaining adequate oral hygiene procedures, further complicating oral health. Aim: To verify the dentinal hypersensitivity by 1) Light stroke with a dental explorer along the cervical third of the teeth 2) 1-s air blast and 3) Cold water stimuli. Further their responses were recorded on a verbal rating scale. Results: When the results of the two groups were compared, there were no significant differences in any of the three stimuli tests. When the mean discomfort score was compared using paired t test group 1 had a lower mean score indicating greater effectiveness of Naf over APF group. At the end of two weeks, there was a marked reduction in the VRS scores in both the groups.
