If you are between the ages of 13 and 50 and are scheduled to have surgery on your lower jaw / chin, you could be a part of this research project. Qualifying participants will receive a total of $390 if they complete all the data collection visits. To qualify you must be generally healthy and be willing to come for a total of 6 visits over about two and a half years. You may participate in this study if your oral and maxillofacial surgeon is Dr. Frost, Kendall, or Sacco in Durham or Chapel Hill, NC, Dr. Tucker in Charlotte NC, or is on staff at the UNC School of Dentistry.

Qualifying individuals will receive $25 and a free dental cleaning at each annual recall visit. To qualify, you must have all four wisdom teeth present (erupted or impacted), be willing to retain them for at least five years and meet dental and health conditions.

TMJ Study

If you are bothered by TMJ pain or frequently complain of sore facial muscles and/or joints, you may be eligible for our study! We are interested in the relationships between mood, blood pressure and sensory perception in people with facial pain of at least 6 months duration. Eligible participants will earn up to $100. For details, please call 919-966-1060.

Tooth Replacement Study

If you are between the ages of 18 and 75 and are missing 2 or more back teeth for a period of no less than two months, you could be part of this research project.
