Demonstrated that the use of Strontium Acetate tooth paste for three weeks drastically reduced the VAS from 5.26 to 1.21 compared to Sodium fluoride tooth paste for the same period of treatment (Table 2).
The data also showed that Strontium acetate 8% was more effective to reduce the pain compared with Colgate total care 0.24% (0.14% w/v fluoride ion) used by control group.
Similar results were also reported by Parkinson et al.19 who demonstrated reduction in dentine hypersensitivity after the use of Strontium acetate tooth paste by occluding the dentinal tubules and withstanding acid erosion.
The materials are barium acetate [Ba[(C[H.sub.3]COO).sub.2], 99%], strontium acetate [Sr[(C[H.sub.3]COO).sub.2], 99%], titanium isopropoxide [Ti([C.sub.12][O.sub.4][H.sub.28]), 99.999%], gallium trioxide [[Ga.sub.2][O.sub.3]], 2methoxyethanol [[H.sub.3]COOC[H.sub.2]C[H.sub.2]OH, 99%], ethanol 96%, TCO glass, distilled water, silver paste, preparate glass, and aluminum foil.
As the first step in BST thin-film manufacturing, we prepared substrate of transparent conductive oxide (TCO); after that BST solution is made by reacting barium acetate, strontium acetate, titanium isopropoxide, and 5 mL of 2-methoxyethanol solvent using Branson Model 2210 ultrasonic for 90 minutes.
(28) produced sol-gel-derived [SrTi0.sub.3] thin films using semihydrate strontium acetate and titanium tetra-n-butoxide as starting materials, with acetic acid and 2-methoxycthanol as solvents.
Therefore, starting with a low-cost precursor such as strontium chloride rather than strontium acetate may reduce the total cost of the production.
