The main objective of this study was to investigate the relation between ceramic brackets and the development of white spot lesions (WSLs) compared to that associated with conventional metal brackets.
this study aimed to assess the effect of the application of the low-viscosity Icon resin infiltrate on the color change of the diagnosed white spot enamel lesions (WSLs) over 3-, 6-, and 12-m follow-up periods. The ICDAS scoring system was used to visually diagnose WSLs in a total of 96 anterior teeth in 49 participants and the teeth were then were evaluated for their color change using a spectrophotometer. According to the manufacturer directions the Icon kit was applied to the WSLs-diagnosed teeth as follows: the WSLs were treated with 15% hydrofluoric acid (Icon-Etch) was applied to the lesions for 120 seconds then it was rinsed for 30 seconds. Next, the etched WSLs were treated with 99% ethanol (Icon-dry) and for 30 seconds. Then the Icon-Resin was applied and light cured for 40 seconds. The change of color was done after 3-, 6- and 12-month . The mean and standard deviation values were statistically analyzed with the repeated measure ANOVA test and the Paired sample t-test.
White spot lesions (WSL) are characterized by an apparently intact outer surface and a demineralized subsurface, and are considered the first clinical sign of dental caries. Aim of this study is to determine the treatment potential of self-assembling peptide (P11-4), casein phosphopeptide-amorphos calcium fluoride phosphate (CPP-ACFP) and resin infiltration technique to reverse or arrest the WSLs in the same oral environments in pediatric patients using visual assessments and laser fluorescence investigation.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of calcium fluoride nanoparticles containing orthodontic primer in preventing or decreasing the incidence WSLs over a period of 6 months in patients with fixed orthodontic appliances. This study proposed to be double blinded, split mouth, randomized clinical trial, with equal randomization (1:1 allocation ratio).
Objectives: to assess the efficiency of four prophylactic protocols on white spot lesions during orthodontic treatment: 1. professional mechanical tooth cleaning (PMTC)+fluoride varnish, 2. PMTC+fluoride varnish+gaseous ozone therapy 3. PMTC+fluoride varnish+domestic octenidin mouth rinse, 4. PMTC+fluoride varnish+domestic octenidin mouth rinse+ gaseous ozone therapy versus a control group not subjected to any prophylactic program. Materials and Methods: Patients (n=150, 111 women and 39 men, age 16-50y,) who began orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances bonded to both dental arches have been provided with detailed initial oral hygiene instruction recommendations. The hygienic recommendations comprised: toothbrushing every surface after every meal (4 minutes) with a fluoridated toothpaste (1450 ppm) using the roll and Bass methods with a soft toothbrush recommended for fixed appliance, interdental toothbrushes, single-tufted brushes and dental floss recommended for fixed appliance. An instruction leaflet has been delivered to every subject, as well. A reinstruction was made during every control visit referring to the results of the oral hygiene assessment. Subsequently, the patients were randomly allocated (using number random generator) into five groups (n=30), including four study groups (I, II, III, IV) and one control group (K). Group I: professional mechanical tooth cleaning (PMTC)+fluoride varnish, group II: PMTC+fluoride varnish+gaseous ozone therapy, group III: PMTC+fluoride varnish+domestic octenidin mouth rinse, group IV: PMTC+fluoride varnish+domestic octenidin mouth rinse+ gaseous ozone therapy, control group (K) not subjected to any prophylactic program. The period of observation was 12 months, with prophylactic visits every four weeks and examinations every 12 weeks. The assessment of white spot lesions was proceeded on the labial surfaces of upper and lower teeth, with patient on the dental chair in proper dental lighting, after cleaning and drying the assessed surfaces.
Clinically, formation of white spots can occur as early as 4 weeks into orthodontic treatment and very common in high caries risk individuals. When left untreated, the calcium loss continues, the enamel breaks down entirely, and a cavity appears. These can cause caries thereby leading to poor esthetics and patient dissatisfaction. The labio-gingival area of the lateral incisors is the most common site for WSL and the maxillary posterior segments are the least common site, with males affected more in comparison with females.Hence inducing remineralization of existing lesions is the key treatment to prevent cavitation.
the aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of BiominF® and Novamin® in comparison to Casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) in the treatment of enamel white spot lesions
to evaluate the caries prevention potential of pearl powder against CPP-ACP in enamel white spot lesions.
During re-mineralization of white spot lesion, Will biomimetic self-assembling peptides improve the re-mineralizating effect of the post orthodontic white spot lesion compared to fluoride-based delivery systems?
to remineralize the white spot caries lesions after orthodontic treatment , the investigator will use two different materials ( Clinpro tooth creme versus Gc tooth mousse) and will compare between their effects in remineralization of white spot caries lesions.
