Active Comparator: Toothpaste without Triclosan
This arm will use a toothpaste that does not contain triclosan
Other: Toothpaste without triclosan
this intervention will use a toothpaste without triclosan
This arm will use colgate total which contains triclosan
this intervention will use Colgate Total which contains triclosan
Other Name: Colgate total toothpaste
This will be a double-blind, parallel group study utilizing the experimental gingivitis model. Subjects will be randomly assigned to an arm of the study. Enrolled subjects will also be randomly assigned to either right or left side mandibular stent.
Saliva and gingival crevicular fluid and plaque samples will be collected at Day 0, 14, 21, and 35 study visits. A randomization chart will be used to identify which two sites (teeth and tooth surface) will be used at the specific study visit for collection of gingival crevicular fluid(GCF)and plaque. Gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and plaque samples will not be taken from implants. If one of the posterior teeth is missing, the cuspid tooth will be used as a substitute tooth. Repeat gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) samples will be taken at Day 14, and 21.
