Orthodontic study

 Healthy volunteers between the ages of 16-65 years receiving orthodontic treatment with fixed braces and with gingivitis (red and bleeding gums) are invited to participate in a 3-month dental research study to test a new approach in reducing gum inflammation and dental plaque. 

The study requires a screening visit to determine if you qualify. 

What will happen at the study screening visit? We will: 

  • Review your medical and dental history 
  • Examine your teeth, gums and mouth 
  • Measure the level of gum redness and bleeding 

Once you qualify and agree to participate in the study: 

  • You will come to the clinic five times until the end of the 3 months for assessments and treatments. 
  • $575 compensation will be provided to those who complete the study
