Evaluation of the Desensitizing Effect of Gluma Dentin Bond on Teeth Prepared for Complete-Coverage Restorations


PMID: 1810321

This clinical trial assessed the ability of Gluma Dentin Bond to inhibit dentinal sensitivity in teeth prepared to receive complete cast restorations. Twenty patients provided 76 teeth for the study. Following tooth preparation, dentinal surfaces were coated with either sterile water (control) or two 30-second applications of Gluma Dentin Bond (test) on either intact or removed smear layers. Patients were recalled after 14 days for a test of sensitivity of the prepared dentin to compressed air, osmotic stimulus (saturated CaCl2 solution), and tactile stimulation via a scratch test under controlled loads. A significantly lower number of teeth responded to the test stimuli for both Gluma groups when compared to the controls (P less than .01). No difference was noted between teeth with smear layers intact or removed prior to treatment with Gluma.
