The Prevalence of White Spot Lesions During Orthodontic Treatment With Fixed Appliances

2019-12-07 00:56:35 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study investigates how often cavities develop on the permanent teeth of patients with braces (orthodontic treatment). The hypothesis is that there is no difference in the number of cavities on the permanent teeth of patients with braces compared to similar patients without braces.

Description

The purpose of this cross-sectional study is to determine the prevalence of early carious lesions (white spot lesions, or WSLs) for patients who are receiving orthodontic treatment compared to patients who are not receiving orthodontic treatment.

Subjects will be recruited from the University of Kentucky Orthodontic Clinic patient pool. Orthodontic care at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry (UKCOD) is provided by orthodontic faculty, as well as students enrolled in the graduate orthodontic program at the UKCOD. Subjects will be invited to participate in this study after receiving an initial treatment plan with fixed appliances for at least one arch.
