Evaluation of Enamel Demineralization During Clear Aligner Orthodontic Treatment

2019-10-02 07:21:30 | BioPortfolio


Development of white spot lesions (enamel demineralization) will be evaluated quantitatively during clear aligner orthodontic treatment compared to conventional fixed appliances using quantitative light induced fluorescence (QLF)


White spot lesion (WSL) may develop around fixed orthodontic appliances. With clear aligners, however, the issue is not controversial. WSL will be monitored in 2 groups of patients; one group using clear aligners and one group wearing fixed orthodontic appliances for 3 months. QLF images will be taken before treatment (T0) and 3 months after commencement of the treatment (T1). The results will be compared between the two groups

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A dental health survey developed to evaluate a patient's orthodontic treatment need and priority for orthodontic care. The index is based on an assessment of degree of MALOCCLUSION and the potential aesthetic and dental health benefit of the treatment under consideration.

Orthodontic appliances, fixed or removable, used to maintain teeth in corrected positions during the period of functional adaptation following corrective treatment. These appliances are also used to maintain the positions of the teeth and jaws gained by orthodontic procedures. (From Zwemer, Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p263)
