Purpose: To evaluate the desensitizing capabilities of a new toothpaste containing 5.5% potassium citrate (Colgate Sensitive Multi Protection Toothpaste) to another toothpaste containing 3.75% potassium chloride (Sensodyne Total Care F Toothpaste). Methods: A 4-week clinical study was conducted in 75 subjects at the University of Rome, at Tor Vergata, in Rome, Italy, using a double blind, stratified, two treatment design. Tactile sensitivity as well as air blast sensitivity assessment was used to compare the efficacy of the two products. Results: There was no statistically significant difference in tactile sensitivity scores and air blast sensitivity scores between the tested toothpastes at baseline, 2 weeks and 4 weeks. Both toothpastes provided statistically significant improvement in tactile sensitivity scores and air blast sensitivity scores after 2 weeks of use and 4 weeks of use as compared to baseline scores.

Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the desensitizing capabilities of a new toothpaste containing 5.5% potassium citrate (Colgate Sensitive Multi Protection Toothpaste) to another toothpaste containing 3.75% potassium chloride (Sensodyne Total Care F Toothpaste). Methods: A 4-week clinical study was conducted in 75 subjects at the University of Rome, at Tor Vergata, in Rome, Italy, using a double blind, stratified, two treatment design. Tactile sensitivity as well as air blast sensitivity assessment was used to compare the efficacy of the two products. Results: There was no statistically significant difference in tactile sensitivity scores and air blast sensitivity scores between the tested toothpastes at baseline, 2 weeks and 4 weeks. Both toothpastes provided statistically significant improvement in tactile sensitivity scores and air blast sensitivity scores after 2 weeks of use and 4 weeks of use as compared to baseline scores.
