Fare clinical data exist about the incidence and severity by which root dentin sensitivity results from periodontal therapy. But many Authors reported that root sensitivity after scaling and root planning is a frequent clinical event. In the present clinical trial patients were given a preventive prescription of a desensitizing dental system (Curasept Sensitivity®), in order to evaluate the efficacy of this protocol in pain reduction after periodontal therapy. After professional oral hygiene therapy was performed, patients were divided into 2 groups: first group received precise oral hygiene instruction (group A), while second group received also the desensitizing system, to be used everyday (group B). After 3 weeks, the root-planing was performed, and patients were weekly evaluated for 4 weeks. Baseline and follow-up recordings included responses of teeth to pain stimuli (directed compressed air) at buccal surfaces as graded by the patient on a 10 cm visual analogue scale (VAS). The data confirm that meticulous plaque control reduces both root e dentin sensitivity in the period immediately before periodontal therapy. Moreover, utilization of a desensitizing system before and after periodontal therapy revealed to be an effective protocol in reduction of dentinal sensitivity and pain.
