Multi-centre Clinical Trials

Newcastle has led and participated in major dental clinical trials across a broad range of dental areas.

Many of these have been supported by national research funders, such as the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), but we also have significant links with industry.

Our research

Examples of our research, include:

  • the FiCTION trial to assess whether children's teeth should be filled or not
  • the IQUAD trial to look at both scaling and polishing of teeth and oral hygiene advice
  • industrial collaborations investigating new restorative technologies
  • determining the relationship between e-cigarettes and periodontal health
