In this study, bone remodeling in the gingival crevicular fluid was evaluated biochemically during canine distalization in obese individuals and compared with normal weight individuals. At the same time, the speed of tooth movement was measured in obese individuals and compared with normal weight individuals.
The goal of this split-mouth, head-to-head, randomized controlled trial is to compare the effects of a fixed straight retainer with the V- loop bonded retainer on periodontal health in patients with the requirement of continuous fixed retention for 12-24 months after orthodontic treatment. The main question it aims to answer is whether the V- loop bonded retainer is more effective than fixed straight retainer for periodontal health management. Each patient will receive 2 lower fixed and bonded retainers: (1) a straight wire retainer (SWR) and (2) a looped wire retainer (LWR). Patients will be asked to floss once daily with a thread flosser. Researchers will compare the effects of two types of retainers to see if there is a statistically significant difference.
The objective of this study is to determine to effect of PBM Ortho, a photobiomodulation device, in adult patients undergoing clear aligners orthodontic treatment. We hypothesize that PBM Ortho will reduced the orthodontic associated pain in the clear aligner patients. This effect will be evaluated by recording the pain on visual analog scale given to the patients before the placement of clear aligners and collecting saliva.
This study was conducted to compare the periodontal health of labially and palatally impacted maxillary canines with similar mesio-distal displacement, perpendicular distance, and angulation, and to compare them with the contralateral canines that served as control teeth. Two null hypothesis were tested: (1) there are no differences in attached and keratinized gingival widths and gingival thickness between impacted teeth and controls, and (2) there are no differences in attached and keratinized gingival widths and gingival thickness of labially and palatally impacted canines.
To evaluate the association of the level of quality of life related to oral health, between treatment with the minitube system and conventional ligation brackets, in adult patients with moderate malocclusion, during the first six months, of orthodontic treatment.
The objectives if this study was to evaluate the efficacy of 3 different rectangular archwires in the correction of the curve of Spee (COS), to record the time needed to level excessive COS in the mandibular arch using the 3 archwire sizes, to investigate the changes in intercanine and intermolar widths and arch length during leveling, to measure the arterio-posterior and vertical movement for the lower incisors and lower molars, to record pulpal blood flow and to detect the root resorption in the lower anterior teeth associated with leveling excessive COS using the 3 different archwires.
To investigate and compare vertical gingival display (VGD) changes associated with upper premolars extraction during orthodontic treatment.
This study evaluates the effects of genius toothbrushes on periodontal status of patients during fixed orthodontic treatment.Half of the patients received manual orthodontic toothbrushes (Oral B Ortho, Procter & Gamble, USA) with V-shaped bristles and rounded ends. The others received genius orthodontic toothbrush (Oral B Genius 8900, Procter & Gamble, USA) with Oral-B CrossAction brush head, Procter & Gamble, USA).
The purpose of this study is to investigate rapidity of tooth alignment in a randomised clinical trial of orthodontic patients allocated randomly into two different appointment intervals groups. First group will be reviewed every two weeks to adjust their braces while the second group will be reviewed every 8 weeks.
The current study aimed to determine if MI Varnish has an effect in preventing the formation of white spot lesions for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. 33 subjects were prospectively recruited for the project as the MI Varnish group, with a control group of 29 orthodontically treated subjects who received routine treatment and oral hygiene regimes.Difference in prevention of white spot formation between the control and the study groups were evaluated through photographic records and clinical examination by using the Enamel Decalcification Index (EDI) scores.
