Forsyth is conducting a study on tooth sensitivity. Read the information below to see if this study pertains to you.
- Do you feel pain or discomfort after a bite of ice cream or a spoonful of hot soup?
- Do you have teeth with cavities?
If you answered Yes to sensitivity and No to cavities, you may have “dentin hypersensitivity” (tooth sensitivity)
We are inviting volunteers (18-80 years of age) with dentin hypersensitivity (tooth sensitivity) to participate in a 14-day dental study to test a new (investigational) product in relieving pain and discomfort.

Where: The Forsyth Institute Center for Clinical and Translational Research, 245 First Street, 17th Floor, Cambridge MA (Enter on 1 Athenaeum St.)
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
- Test your teeth that are sensitive to determine the level of sensitivity to cold
Once you qualify and agree to participate in the study, you will either:
- Receive a regular toothpaste and a new toothbrush to brush your teeth for a week
- Receive study toothpaste and a new toothbrush and instructions to follow
There will be a total of 3 study visits after the screening visit.
A total of $400 will be given as payment if you complete the study.
