Prevalence of dental hypersensitivity after applying immediate dentinary sealing in the fixed partial prosthesis - Prevalencia de hipersensibilidad dentinaria aplicando sellado dentinario inmediato en la clínica de protesis parcial fija
Objective: Evaluate the effect of inmediate dentinary sealing, as treatment of hypersensitivity in patients attending the fixed prosthetic clinic at the Catholic University of Santiago de Guayaquil dental clinic. Materials and methods: This study was designed as clinic, prospective and correlational. 25 patients were selected, they were divided into 2 groups, one group included 14 patients in which teeth were prepared with SDI (29 teeth) and a second control group of 11 patients in which teeth were not prepared with SDI (19 teeth), giving a total of 48 teeth. Surveys were made 1, 2 and 3 weeks after preparations and the presence of hipersensitivity was registered with the visual analog scale. Results: A chi-square test was made and in the analysis of the pain scale (EVA), the study sample exhibited a significant difference in a range above 3 for the group in which SDI was not applied. Conclusion: This study demostrates that the application of SDI helps diminish significantly dental hipersensitivity.
