  Purpose

In this study we intend to find out the pattern of biofilm accumulation in vivo on various surface finishings.

Our intention is to prepare Polymethylmetacrylate squers on orthodontical brackets,then prepare the surface of the sample and measure the surface roughness with a profilimeter and get the mean value in Ra units, then place the brackets on lower premolars and molars for 12 hours, remove them and examine the biofilm formed with confocal scanning microscope.

Further study details as provided by Hadassah Medical Organization:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • confocal scanning laser microscope evaluation of biofilm formation

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • roughness analysis of the samples with profilometer

Estimated Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: January 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2006
Detailed Description:

Several studies in the past to assess the effects of surface roughness on the amount of plaque accumulation in vitro, whereas only few performed a modern in vitro assessment of the plaque accumulation. In this study we intend to find out the pattern of biofilm accumulation in vivo on various surface finishings.

Our intention is to prepare Polymethylmetacrylate squers on orthodontical brackets,then prepare the surface of the sample and measure the surface roughness with a profilimeter and get the mean value in Ra units, then place the brackets on lower premolars and molars for 12 hours, remove them and examine the biofilm formed with confocal scanning microscope.

Statistical evaluation of pilot study determined the need to perform this research on twelve(12) candidates. It is our intention to check two materials in each candidate: composite resin and polymethylmetacrylate.
