Comparison of the Effect of Two Types of Fixed Retainers on the Health of the Gums
Clinical and Radiographic Comparison and Evaluation of Two Types of Lingual Fixed Retainers on the Health of Periodontium

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.

Health of Periodontium
  • 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
  • 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
  • Active Comparator: Fiber-reinforced-composite retainer
    Intervention: Device: Fiber-reinforced-composite retainer
  • Active Comparator: composite-wire retainer
    Intervention: Device: Composite-wire retainer
