Effects of the Different Orthodontic Fixed Retainers on Enamel Colour Change

2019-10-02 07:21:45 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this study is to compare the tooth colour changes caused by retainers made of stainless steel wires and fiber reinforced in long term


30 patients who were planned to use lower fixed retainer after fixed orthodontic treatment, were included in the study and divided into 3 groups. (n=10) (Group 1: Bond a braid retainer, Group 2: Ribbond retainer, Group 3: EverStick Ortho retainer). Colour measurements will be made with spectrophotometer (Vita easyshade) after debonding (T1), after retainer application (T2), in 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and finally 1 year from 6 lower anterior teeth. The Commission Internationale de I'Echairage L*a*b* system will be used to determine the tooth colour. ∆E values measured at different times will be compared.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any change in the hue, color, or translucency of a tooth due to any cause. Restorative filling materials, drugs (both topical and systemic), pulpal necrosis, or hemorrhage may be responsible. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p253)

Mental processing of chromatic signals (COLOR VISION) from the eye by the VISUAL CORTEX where they are converted into symbolic representations. Color perception involves numerous neurons, and is influenced not only by the distribution of wavelengths from the viewed object, but also by its background color and brightness contrast at its boundary.

The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)

The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)
