|Study Start Date:||June 2013|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||June 2014|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||January 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
those with an Invisalign® Treatment for orthodontic correction
those with braces for orthodontic correction.
The aims of the study are to determine:
the presence of pain, the magnitude of pain, the duration of pain, and the location of pain.
The hypotheses of this study are:
- Treatment with Invisalign ® aligners result in less pain than the braces
- Treatment with Invisalign ® aligners result in less irritation to the soft tissues with braces
- Pain should increase each time the aligners are put in the mouse and decrease until disappearing on the third day.
- The quality of life will be most affected by treatment with braces than with Invisalign ®.
- Null Hypothesis: There is no difference at all points between the two treatments.
