Abstract

"Objective. This paper focuses on clinical responses after 7 days of oral exposure to two resin-based materials as desensitizing. agents compared to a fluoride varnish and on morphological and analytical study as a means to elucidate the mechanism of. action. Materials and methods. The elemental composition of Vertise Flow (VF), Universal Dentine Sealant (UDS) and. Flor-Opal Varnish (FOV) were investigated by using an X-ray energy dispersive spectrometer (EDX) in conjunction with a. scanning electron microscope (SEM). SEM morphology of the material-treated dentine surfaces and pain reduction ability. according to the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) were evaluated in selected hypersensitive teeth. Post treatments and 7 day. controls were recorded with SEM and VAS measurements. Clinical data was analysed with the Student’s t-test for paired data,. with a 5% significance level. Results. Silicon, ytterbium and alumina were the most present elements in VF, whilst calcium,. chloride, silicon and alumina were highest in UDS.
