Objective: This randomized control clinical trial was conducted to study the effectiveness of 8% proargin containing toothpaste in the control of dentinal hypersensitivity (DH) over a period of 4 weeks. Materials and Methods: 40 subjects with established DH were selected. DH was evaluated using thermal, air blast and tactile stimuli. Subjects were randomly divided into study and control groups and were advised to use commercially available 8% proargin (Mfd by-Colgate Palmolive (India) Ltd, Plot No. 78, EPIP Phase I, Jharmajri, Bddi, Tehsil Nalagarh, District Solan, Himachal Pradesh 174103) containing toothpaste and commercially available desensitizing toothpaste containing 2% potassium ion respectively. Subjects response was evaluated at baseline and 4 weeks after the application. Conclusion: When used over a period of 4 weeks, 8% proargin containing toothpaste provided significantly greater relief.
