ANAMARIA BECHIR, MARIANA PACURAR, ANGELA CODRUTA PODARIU, SIMONA MUCENIC, EDWIN SEVER BECHIR THE EFFECT OF 2-HYDROXYLETHYL METHACRYLATE ON ENAMEL ABFRACTION
The loss of the hard dental structures represented by dentin and enamel may be due by either to a process of wear of the teeth (erosion, abrasion, wear, abfractie), or by a combination thereof. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of two types of dental materials (Gluma desensitizer-Heraeus Kultzer and Geristore-DenMat) in decreasing the dentin sensitivity of the teeth affected by abfraction. The study included a total of 15 patients presenting at least two teeth with abfraction, a total of 35 teeth. Selected patients to participate to this study presented a moderate tooth sensitivity to thermal and chemical agents. The dental materials used to this study were deposited on the surface of the harmed with abfraction of all patients and the treatment was conducted by following the same procedure for each material in part. The results of study demonstrate that the effectiveness of the two dental materials used to reduce the sensitivity of teeth with abfraction was different. The best results were observed in teeth treated with Geristore.
