This study is a single-blind randomized controlled trial on fixed orthodontic appliance candidates (n = 90) assigned into a control group (n = 30) and two different study groups (n = 30 in each). Patients who requiring non-extraction fixed orthodontic treatment, crowding under 5mm in the incisors and heaving at least 20 permanent teeth with healthy periodontal tissue and devoid of caries were included in the study. The control group received a standard printed educational material assisted with verbal information. The study groups either received video assisted or hands-on training about fixed orthodontic appliance and oral hygiene. The time requirements for all three educational interventions were recorded at the initial visit. The adequacy of oral hygiene is documented through plaque and gingival indices at the initial visit and 8th week of the treatment.
