Effectiveness of Toothbrushing Techniques in Plaque Removal and Caries Lesion Control
Effectiveness of Toothbrushing Techniques in Plaque Removal and Caries Lesion Control in Erupting Primary Permanent Molars - Randomized Clinical Trial Abbreviated Over 24 Months

The aim of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of cross-toothbrushing technique compared with anteroposterior and biofilm removal and control of caries lesions in first permanent molars.

220 children between 5-7 years with at least one permanent molar erupting will be selected, with a maximum score of ICDAS 3. These children will be randomly allocated into two groups according to the technique adopted. The teeth will be evaluated by ICDAS, laser fluorescence (DIAGNOdent), QLF and subtraction radiography at baseline and after 15 days, 3, 6, 9,12,18,24 months.

Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Caries
  • Behavioral: modified toothbrush with multilevel filaments
    After the allocation of patients in this group they were instructed to brush their first molars erupt with the brushing technique anteroposterior.
    Other Name: stages, oral b
  • Behavioral: cross toothbrushing
    Children allocated to the group multi-bristled brush will be modified compared to the results of the group cross toothbrushing technique
    Other Name: buccal-lingual technique
  • Experimental: multilevel filaments toothbrush
    Children will brush with anteroposterior toothbrushing and a modified toothbrush (multilevel filaments)
    Intervention: Behavioral: modified toothbrush with multilevel filaments
  • Active Comparator: cross toothbrushing
    Children will brush with cross toothbrushing.
    Intervention: Behavioral: cross toothbrushing
