Abstract

The aim of the paper is to identify any loss of brackets adhesion to dental enamel after treatment with the most common methods of caries prophylaxis. Based on clinical experience gained in the Master of Science in Dental Hygiene at the University of Pavia (Lanteri C, Lanteri V, Segù M, Collesano V., 2007) the following protocols have been identified: 1) topical application of fluoride, 2) casein pastes, 3) application of ozone. The research was conducted in the lab by measuring the separation force of the brackets from bovine teeth, treated according to experimental protocols, inspected, and compared with an untreated control group. This experimental study produced interesting results, offering clinical insights for patients who have to undergo multibracket orthodontic treatment after anti-caries prophylaxis.
