J Bahria Uni Med Dental Coll Jan ;9(1):53-6.

ABSTRACT: Objective: To compare the mean reduction in pain scores between Bonding agent (GLUMA Comfort Bond+ Desensitizer, and Fluoride varnish. Methodology: The study was conducted at Operative Dentistry, Department at Altamash Institute of Dental Medicine, Karachi from July 2015 to August 2016. Total 152 patients were selected. Patients were randomly allocated into two groups A and B. Gluma comfort bond plus desensitizer® was applied to the patients in group A and Duraphet was applied to the patients in group B. Initial assessment was done after the application of the above products and thermal test was performed. The outcomes were based on a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). Re-Evaluation was done again after 30 days of treatment in terms of mean reduction in pain from baseline by applying thermal test on visual analogue scale. Results: The average age of the patients was 37.4 ±8.38 years. After 30 days, mean Visual Analog Scale was significantly low in Group A i.e. 2.95±0.0.86 as compared to Group B i.e. 4.01±0.79(p=0.0005). Significant more reduction in mean pain score was observed in Bonding agent (Gluma desensitizer) as compared to Fluoride varnish Duraphat. Conclusion: In our study we found that bonding agent ( Gluma Desensitizer) is more effective in treating Dentine Hypersensitivity compared to fluoride varnish (Duraphat desensitizer group).
