Here's a simple report that gives you all the info you need to know

If you or some one you know has imacted wisdom teeth, you may qualify for free treatment and earn extra money for your time and travel. And volunteering for a wisdom teeth extraction medical research study helps our society improve medical treatemtent.

The U.S. Government Federal Drug Administration requires rigourus testing of all new medications and treatments. These clinical trials make sure that drugs and/or treatments are both safe and effective.

Every drug must be tested before it is released to the general public, making clinical trials necessary and important for everyone's health and well- being. An important part of the process is the final phase, trying the medication against a placeobo to determine effacicy.

Possible wisdom teeth clinical trial benefits include:

1. If you are suffering from impacted wisdom teeth this may be the only way to get access to treatments without having to pay any money out of your own pocket.

2. Excellent care. Expert dental care is expensive and many average Americans can't afford good dental care. Clinical trials offer excellent dental care for free.

3. Doing something good. Without clinical trials many new life-saving medications and treatments would never find their way to market. This is a great opportunity to give back.

What exactly are paid medical research studies?

A medical research firm is contracted by a drug manufacturer to test their new products out on live patients.

The product is most likely a drug, either oral, injection, or topical, or it may be a procedure of some sort. In an actual setting, the drug would be used to prevent disease, treat a disease, condition or disorder, or to treat symptoms.

The medical research firm with then find participants for the study. The participants fall into one of the following two classifications, depending on the needs of the manufacturer:

# Healthy Person Studies
# Afflicted Person Studies
The afflicted person studies are those done on groups of people who currently have the disease/disorder/condition/symptoms being treated by the experimental drug.

Can I get my wisom teeth removed for FREE?

YES! You may be eligible to participate in a wisdom tooth extraction study in local your area that will PAY you to get your wisom teeth removed!

Many local research clinics in your area may be involved with wisdom teeth extraction studies and will remove your wisdom teeth for no charge, but there are others that will PAY you for taking them out.

Compensation for your time and effort varies by study depending on the number of days/nights involved and the types of procedures done at each study visit. Compensation is based on actual number of visits completed and is approved by the Institutional Review Board.

The specifics regarding monetary compensation is included in the informed consent document that you will be asked to sign prior to any study procedures being conducted.

How Much Do These Clinics Usually Pay?

Payment for paid medical research studies varies greatly, and ranges from an outpatient study at $20 a visit, to an inpatient study at $500 to $5,000 or more.

Participants in clinical trials for pay are either outpatient or inpatient. Outpatient paid clinical studies require you to come to the clinic for multiple visits, while inpatient paid medical trials require you to stay on premises, so that they can monitor you and make sure that all participants are eating the same foods, have the same level of exercise, etc.

How to Get Paid for Medical Studies

1. Look for a trustworthy company.
Call the companies that interest you and set an appointment to tour the facility. This will give you an idea what they do and how they operate.

2. Ask about their programs.
Get as much information from the company as possible. Also do your own research on the company. Find out how much they pay per study. Check for testimonials from other users.

3. Apply for a study.
You must fill out an application or call to sign up. Give them your correct information because they will use this to send payment after the study. When you apply, you are not bound to go through with the study.Most companies will give you a physical that you must pass before you will be accepted for the study.

4. Perform the study.
You must cooperate in the study and follow the rules. You may be asked to stay overnight for observation or for at least 24 hours. During this time you can do any activity permitted by the facility. They may draw your blood for a study. After the study you must wait a specified amount of time before you can participate in another study.

5. Get paid.
You likely should get paid two to three days after the study is complete by mail or by their personal method of payment. Check with the company if you are missing payment. Your amount paid will depend on the type of study.

6. Give referrals.
Another way to get paid is to take a healthy friend with you. Some companies pay for referrals for each new volunteer.

What Are Some of the Facts About
Wisdom Teeth Removal That I Need to Know?

Each qualified medical center works exclusively with board certified oral surgeons for all of our wisdom tooth extraction studies.

-Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. Sometimes these teeth can be a valuable asset to the mouth when healthy and properly aligned, but more often, they are misaligned and require removal.

-Wisdom teeth present potential problems when they are misaligned - they can position themselves horizontally, be angled toward or away from the second molars or be angled inward or outward.

-Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can crowd or damage adjacent teeth, the jawbone, or nerves.

-Wisdom teeth that lean toward the second molars make those teeth more vulnerable to decay by entrapping plaque and debris. In addition, wisdom teeth can be entrapped completely within the soft tissue and/or the jawbone or only partially break through or erupt through the gum.

-Teeth that remain partially or completely entrapped within the soft tissue and /or the jawbone are termed "impacted."

-Wisdom teeth that only partially erupt allows for an opening for bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause an infection, which results in pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, and general illness.

-Partially erupted teeth are also more prone to tooth decay and gum disease because their hard-to-reach location and awkward positioning makes brushing and flossing difficult.

-Each qualified medical center works exclusively with board certified oral surgeons for all of our wisdom tooth extraction studies.

What Happens During the Actual Surgery
and How Long Does it Take?

Depending on how the roots of the wisdom teeth are located in relation to your jaw bone and the surrounding nerves, the length of surgery may vary. You will have the opportunity to consult with the oral surgeon who will discuss specific time ranges with you at your screening visit.

1. Local Anesthesia
First, the oral surgeon will numb the area where the tooth (teeth) is to be removed with a local anesthetic. This is for pain control and will not make you sleepy. It will be injected into the gums to numb the area and surrounding tissues.

2. Deep Sedation
Sometimes, if more than one wisdom tooth is extracted at the same time (and if the study protocol allows), a deep sedation may be used and is injected into a vein. You, the study participant, are responsible for the cost. Deep sedation helps patients feel comfortable throughout the procedure. It is important to note, however, that most protocols do not allow this.

3. Wisdom Tooth Extraction
To remove the wisdom tooth, the oral surgeon will open up the gum tissue over the tooth and take out any bone that is covering the tooth. He will then separate the tissue connecting the tooth to the bone and then remove the tooth. Sometimes the oral surgeon will cut the tooth into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove.

4. Finishing Up
After the tooth is removed, several stitches will be placed to close the area where the tooth was. Some stitches dissolve over time and some have to be removed after a few days. The oral surgeon will tell you whether your stitches need to be removed. A folded cotton gauze pad is placed over the wound to help stop the bleeding.

What Does Recovery Involve After Wisdom Teeth Are Pulled?

After having your wisdom teeth removed, the speed of your recovery depends on the degree of difficulty of the extraction (a simple extraction of a fully erupted tooth versus a tooth impacted into the jawbone). In general, here's what to expect.

During the first 24 hours

-Bleeding may occur for several hours after tooth extraction. To control it, position a piece of clean moist gauze over the empty tooth socket and bite down firmly. Apply constant pressure for about 45 minutes. A moistened tea bag is an effective alternative. The tannic acid in tea helps healing blood clots to form (blood clots function similarly to scab over an open wound). Repeat this process if a small degree of bleeding continues; if heavy bleeding continues to occur, contact your dentist or oral surgeon. Avoid rinsing or spitting for 24 hours after tooth extraction, avoid "sucking" actions (for example, don't drink beverages through straws or smoke) and avoid hot liquids (such as coffee or soup). These activities can dislodge the clot, causing a dry socket (see below) to develop.

-Facial swelling in the area where the tooth was extracted typically occurs. To minimize swelling, place a piece of ice, wrapped in a cloth, on that area of your face on a schedule of 10-minutes on, followed by 20-minutes off. Repeat as necessary during this first 24-hour period.

-Pain medications, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil) can be taken for minor pain. Your dentist or oral surgeon may prescribe more potent pain relievers, such as narcotics, if necessary.

-Antibiotics that may have been prescribed prior to tooth extraction (to treat any active infection around the wisdom tooth to be extracted) should continue to be taken until the full prescription is gone.

-Foods should be restricted to a liquid diet until all the numbness from anesthesia has worn off. Eat soft foods for a few days. Also avoid alcohol if you're also taking narcotic pain medication.

-Continue to brush your teeth, but avoid the teeth directly neighboring the extracted tooth during the first 24 hours. On day two, resume the gentle brushing of your teeth. Do not use commercial mouth rinses -- these can irritate the extraction site.

-Bite gently on the gauze pad periodically, and change pads as they become soaked with blood. Call your dentist or oral surgeon if you still have bleeding 24 hours after your surgery.

-While your mouth is numb, be careful not to bite the inside of your cheek or lip, or your tongue.

-Do not lie flat. This may prolong bleeding. Prop up your head with pillows.

-Try using an ice pack on the outside of your cheek for the first 24 hours. You can use moist heat-such as a washcloth soaked in warm water and wrung out-for the following 2 or 3 days.

-Relax after surgery. Physical activity may increase bleeding.

-Eat soft foods, such as gelatin, pudding, or a thin soup. Gradually add solid foods to your diet as healing progresses.

-Do not use a straw for the first few days. Sucking on a straw can loosen the blood clot and delay healing.

-After the first day, gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water several times a day to reduce swelling and relieve pain.

-Do not smoke for at least 24 hours after your surgery. The sucking motion can loosen the clot and delay healing. In addition, smoking decreases the blood supply and can bring germs and contaminants to the surgery area.

-Avoid rubbing the area with your tongue or touching it with your fingers.

Your dentist will remove the stitches after a few days, if needed.

After 24 hours

-Facial swelling in the area of the tooth extraction should be treated with heat after the first 24 hours of ice. Apply a moist warm towel to the area on a 20-minute on, 20-minute off schedule. Repeat as necessary.

-Rinse your mouth with warm salt water (1/2 teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water) after meals and before bed. Do not use commercial mouth rinses.

-Stitches, if used and if not of the self-dissolving type, need to be removed by your oral health care provider in about 1 week. If you do require stitches, ask what type you have been given.

-Complete healing doesn't occur for a few weeks to a few months following the extraction. However, usually within the first week or two, enough healing has taken place for use of your mouth to be reasonably comfortable in the area of the extraction. Your dentist will explain what to expect in your specific case.

What to Think About

If your wisdom teeth are not causing problems, it may be difficult to decide whether to have your wisdom teeth removed to prevent possible dental problems later in life. Consider the following:

* You may never have any problems with your wisdom teeth.

* It is rarely harmful to your health to have your wisdom teeth removed, but there are slight risks involved with any surgery.

* In younger people (late teens and early 20s), the wisdom tooth's roots are not fully developed and the jaw bone is not as dense, so it is easier to remove the tooth. The easier it is to remove the tooth, the easier your recovery is likely to be.

* Most problems with wisdom teeth develop between the ages of 15 and 25.

* If you are older than age 30, you have only a small risk of having problems with your wisdom teeth. Few people older than 30 develop problems that require removal of their wisdom teeth.

* Remember by filling out the information to receive this special report on wisdom teeth removal, we have also included you to be considered for a local wisdom teeth removal study in your local area. We work with only the best local medical research centers.
