I've found Simplicity to be a great product for "desensitizing" exposed roots due to recession. Just today a patient came in for recall complaining of moderate to severe sensitivity to cold and sweets on the buccals of 4,5,6,12,13,14. I offered to anesthetize the area but she chose not to.

Soooo, I cleaned the roots with alcohol,rinsed,dried and applied Simplicity as per the protocol and she almost sh.. herself. After curing the Simplicity I again applied air for 30 seconds WITHOUT any pain.

I've never had that kind of success with other products.

Thanks John for developing Simplicity.

Regards,

Paul

I've found the same, but I also put a little Permaseal from Ultradent on and cure it after.

If you choose to use Permaseal on root surfaces after Simplicity, be careful not to have excess that flash causes plaque traps.

But thanks for making my day. Very Happy

I've also done MANY of these over the last three years. I'm finding the beneficial effects last from 6-12 months depending on their gumline brushing habits...type of brush they use....etc.

Is this about normal?

That's about what I see also. Sometimes it goes 18 months, but that's not common.

I had a patient earlier today who complained of moderate to severe sensitivity to finger nail and toothpick touching the buccal of #12.

I desensitized with Simplicity as per the protocol and then blasted with air,touched with an explorer and she still felt "a little pain" but better.

So I placed more Sim 2 (before any contamination) and cured and retested and this time there was no pain at all.

Great stuff, John

Regards,

Paul

what does everyone clean these kind of no prep type restorations or desensitizations?

consepsis?

alcohol?

hydrogen peroxide?

or just sim 1?

i have heard some just use gluteraldyhyde or various desensitizers.

thanks.

take care,
d

I am using the new gel I mentioned before.

But absent that I'd use Consepsis scrub. (Ultradent)

John,

i have heard some people say that there is a decrese in bonding strenghts when using consepsis. is there any validity to these statements, i hope not because i have used both the scrub with ICB brush and plain consepsis liquid ever since dental school. my father loves the stuff.

thanks,
d

Consepsis scrub is different from Consepsis. The scrub is rinsed away, and it has an abrasive.
