Brief Summary:

In dentistry, 3D printing technology is gaining interest. One of the potential application is to construct appliances on 3D reconstructed study models.

The purpose of this study is to compare vacuum formed thermoplastic orthodontic retainers (VFR) constructed on conventional orthodontic study models and reconstructed 3D study models by assessing the oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) instrument, Little's Irregularity Index (LII) and compliance.
