The treatment was ambulatory, it was applied propoleo at 20% of topical form in the affected teeth, three applications with a daily frequency and the effectiveness was assessed at the 72 h. In this study was more frequent mild hyperesthesia followed by moderate. The propoleo at 20 % was an efficient therapy when it were presented mild and moderate hyperesthesias. Remission of the symptoms in a significant way departing from the 48h it was observed; nevertheless, in severe hyperesthesia the probability to eliminate the pain at 72h was about the 50%.
