Dentine hypersensitivity is commonly found in patients with periodontal inflammation, typically caused by a disease process that has exposed the root surface. Use of toothpaste while tooth brushing has been proven to be effective in removing plaque as a major cause of inflammation. This study was performed to analyze the role of tooth brushing with toothpaste containing sodium bicarbonate, sodium fluoride, and potassium nitrate in the treatment of dentine hypersensitivity with periodontal inflammation. Experimental clinical trial data were compared between groups. Both groups showed decreased levels of sensitivity and inflammation. Compared with controls, patients in the treatment group showed a greater decrease in sensitivity.
