  Purpose

This study is for people with sensitive teeth and involves going to the dentist for 6 visits over 8 weeks. During the first 2 weeks, everyone will just brush their teeth two times a day with the fluoride toothpaste provided.

Then you will be assigned to a mouthwash group if you qualify to continue in the study. Two groups will get mouthwash with a certain amount of an experimental ingredient and one group will get a mouthwash with no experimental ingredients. You will have an equal chance of being assigned to any one of the three groups.

For the next 6 weeks, you will rinse with your assigned mouthwash after brushing. A dentist will look at your mouth, teeth, tongue and gums and check for sensitive teeth. The investigators will see if the mouthwash helps to reduce tooth sensitivity during the study.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Tactile Sensitivity Score at Week 6 [ Time Frame: 6 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tooth sensitivity was measured using a Yeaple probe. The force at which discomfort was felt by the participant was recorded on a scale of 10-80 grams. The score for each participant was calculated by averaging the scores for all study teeth for that participant, at each visit.

  • Mean Tactile Sensitivity Score at Week 4 [ Time Frame: 4 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tooth sensitivity was measured using a Yeaple probe. The force at which discomfort was felt by the participant was recorded on a scale of 10-80 grams. The score for each participant was calculated by averaging the scores for all study teeth for that participant, at each visit.

  • Mean Tactile Sensitivity Score at Week 2 [ Time Frame: 2 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tooth sensitivity was measured using a Yeaple probe. The force at which discomfort was felt by the participant was recorded on a scale of 10-80 grams. The score for each participant was calculated by averaging the scores for all study teeth for that participant, at each visit.

  • Mean Tactile Sensitivity Score at Week 1 [ Time Frame: 1 Week ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tooth sensitivity was measured using a Yeaple probe. The force at which discomfort was felt by the participant was recorded on a scale of 10-80 grams. The score for each participant was calculated by averaging the scores for all study teeth for that participant, at each visit.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Tactile Sensitivity VAS Score at Week 1 [ Time Frame: 1 Week ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tooth sensitivity was measured using a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). At each visit, participants rated their perception of the pain/discomfort experienced from the Yeaple probe by marking a single vertical line on a VAS scale from 0 to 100 mm, where 0 = No Pain/Discomfort and 100 = Intense Pain/Discomfort. The dental recorder measured the length of the line from 0 to the participant's line and recorded the VAS score in mm. The investigator recorded a VAS score of 0 mm for participants who did not experience discomfort at the maximum force of 80 grams. The score for each participant was calculated by averaging the scores for all study teeth for that participant.

  • Mean Tactile Sensitivity VAS Score at Week 2 [ Time Frame: 2 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tooth sensitivity was measured using a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS).

The dental recorder measured the length of the line from 0 to the participant's line and recorded the VAS score in mm. The investigator recorded a VAS score of 0 mm for participants who did not experience discomfort at the maximum force of 80 grams. The score for each participant was calculated by averaging the scores for all study teeth for that participant.

  • Mean Tactile Sensitivity VAS Score at Week 4 [ Time Frame: 4 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tooth sensitivity was measured using a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS).

The dental recorder measured the length of the line from 0 to the participant's line and recorded the VAS score in mm. The investigator recorded a VAS score of 0 mm for participants who did not experience discomfort at the maximum force of 80 grams. The score for each participant was calculated by averaging the scores for all study teeth for that participant.

  • Mean Tactile Sensitivity VAS Score at Week 6 [ Time Frame: 6 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tooth sensitivity was measured using a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). At each visit, participants rated their perception of the pain/discomfort experienced from the Yeaple probe by marking a single vertical line on a VAS scale from 0 to 100 mm, where 0 = No Pain/Discomfort and 100 = Intense Pain/Discomfort. The dental recorder measured the length of the line from 0 to the participant's line and recorded the VAS score in mm. The investigator recorded a VAS score of 0 mm for participants who did not experience discomfort at the maximum force of 80 grams. The score for each participant was calculated by averaging the scores for all study teeth for that participant.

  • Mean Cold Air Stimulus VAS Score at Week 1 [ Time Frame: 1 Week ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tooth sensitivity was measured using a Cold Air Stimulus. When being assessed, participants rated their perception of the pain/discomfort experienced when cold air was directed at the exposed root of each tooth by marking a single vertical line on a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) scale from 0 to 100 mm, where 0 = No Pain/Discomfort and 100 = Intense Pain/Discomfort. The dental recorder measured the length of the line from 0 to the participant's line and recorded the VAS score in mm. The score for each participant was calculated by averaging the scores for all study teeth for that participant.

Detailed Description:

This is a double-blind, randomized, parallel group, single center, controlled clinical trial design. Approximately 200 generally healthy adults meeting the necessary inclusion/exclusion criteria will be enrolled so that 180 subjects (60 per treatment group) would reasonably be expected to complete the study. Subjects will have their oral soft/hard tissues assessed and will be evaluated for sensitivity levels at Screening (visit 1), Baseline (visit 2), Week 1, Week 2, Week 4 & Week 6. During the first two weeks of the study, subjects will be instructed to brush their teeth for one minute in their usual manner, twice daily using the provided standard fluoride toothpaste. Subjects will return for the Baseline exam and, upon qualification with entry criteria, will be assigned to one of three treatment groups. Qualified subjects will be instructed to brush their teeth two times daily for one minute in their usual manner using the provided standard fluoride toothpaste. Subjects will be instructed to rinse twice daily, after brushing, with the provided mouthrinse for 60 seconds using 10 ml or 20 ml (depending on the treatment group), for 6 consecutive weeks.
