Abstract
This study investigates the effectiveness of Nd:YAG laser irradiation in treating dentin hypersensitiveness. Among 58 patients, Nd:YAG laser was used in 241 teeth, Naf was applied to the other 130 teeth. The immediate effectiveness and effectiveness 3 months after the treatment was evaluated. Of the treated group pain disappeared immediately after the treatment in 211 teeth (87.6%), while in the control group pain disappeared immediately in 98 teeth (75.4%, p < 0.05). Three months after the treatment, 204 teeth recovered completely in the treatment group, while in the control group only 59 teeth were cured (p < 0.01). This study suggests that using Nd:YAG laser in treating dentin hypersensitiveness is fairly effective.
