ABSTRACT:AIM: The aim of this clinical study was to clinically evaluate the effect of two commercially available dentifrice formulation. Materials And Method: 30 patients having at least 2 sensitive teeth with a VRS (Verbal Rating Scale) of >5 after air blast stimulation, qualified to participate in the study. Group 1 (colagte pro-Argin toothpaste) and Group 2(Aclaim), each containing 15 participants, were subjected to cold water and air blast stimulation for an assessment of DH at baseline and after 3 days usingVRS scores. Statistical Analysis used: independent t-test and paired t test. Results: Air blast test within the groups showed a statistical significance (p<0.001). Statistically no significant difference was found between both group 1 (Pro Argin) and group 2 (Aclaim) and with both the tests. Conclusion: both the dentifrices Pro-ArginTM and AclaimTM were found to provide rapid relief in patients reporting with Dentinal Hypersensitivity.
