  Purpose

Different types of retainers have been used to assure the stability of orthodontic treatment. The aim of this study is clinical and radiographic comparison and evaluation of two common types of lingual fixed retainers on the health of periodontium.

The participants in this study will be examined both clinically and radiographically just after the completion of orthodontic treatment and after a 6-month-period.

The results of the study will be analyzed with Mann-whitney and independent t-test.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measuring periodontal status through clinical examination [ Time Frame: approximately 20 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    for each participant, the examination is carried out right after the completion of orthodontic treatment and after a 6-month-period

  • measuring PDL width in periapical radiographs [ Time Frame: approximately 20 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    for each participant, the examination is carried out right after the completion of orthodontic treatment and after a 6-month-period


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessing periodontial status with Gingival Index [ Time Frame: approximately 20 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A gingival Index score will be assigned to each patient upon completion of orthodontic treatment and after a 6-month-period

  • assessing periodontal status using Plaque Index [ Time Frame: approximately 20 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A plaque Index score will be assigned to each patient upon completion of orthodontic treatment and after a 6-month-period

  • assessing periodontal status using Calculus Index [ Time Frame: approximately 20 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A Calculus Index score will be assigned to each patient upon completion of orthodontic treatment and after a 6-month-period

  • assessing periodontal status using Bleeding on probing [ Time Frame: approximately 20 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Each patient will be examined for bleeding on probing upon completion of orthodontic treatment and after a 6-month-period


Estimated Enrollment: 48

Primary Completion Date: January 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Fiber-reinforced-composite retainer Device: Fiber-reinforced-composite retainer
this type of retainer is placed on the lingual surface of teeth from canine to canine just before the completion of orthodontic treatment
Active Comparator: composite-wire retainer Device: Composite-wire retainer
this type of retainer is placed on the lingual surface of teeth from canine to canine just before the completion of orthodontic treatment to prevent treatment relapse
