Disease relevance of Orthodontic Appliances


High impact information on Orthodontic Appliances

  • The study indicates that chlorhexidine varnish therapy was acceptable to the children and was effective in suppressing oral mutans streptococcal levels for long periods, even when used prior to the placement of fixed orthodontic appliances [4].
  • In fissures and around orthodontic appliances, conventional fluoride agents appear to have only a small effect [5].
  • Bovine enamel chips, coated with streptococci, mounted on modified orthodontic appliances and placed in the mouths of three volunteers, facilitated the measurement of interbacterial adherence in vivo of streptomycin-resistant strains of H. parainfluenzae (HP-28R or HP-42R) [6].
  • An evaluation of beta titanium alloys for use in orthodontic appliances [7].
  • Neither the crude essential oil nor the purified linalool fraction is toxic to mammalian cells, which suggests that the essential oil or its purified components may be useful to control the microbial population in patients with fixed orthodontic appliances [8].
