In vitro comparison of the retention capacity of new aesthetic brackets. (1/419)

Tensile bond strength and bond failure location were evaluated in vitro for two types of aesthetic brackets (non-silanated ceramic, polycarbonate) and one stainless steel bracket, using bovine teeth as the substrate and diacrylate resin as the adhesive. The results show that metallic bracket had the highest bond strength (13.21 N) followed by the new plastic bracket (12.01 N), which does not require the use of a primer. The non-silanated ceramic bracket produced the lowest bond strength (8.88 N). Bond failures occurred mainly between bracket and cement, although a small percentage occurred between the enamel-cement interface with the metal and plastic brackets and within the cement for the plastic bracket. With the ceramic bracket all the failures occurred at the bracket-cement interface. This suggests that the problems of enamel lesions produced by this type of bracket may have been eliminated. The results also show that the enamel/adhesive bond is stronger than the adhesive/bracket bond in this in vitro study.  (+info)

Multi-bracket appliance in management of mandibular reconstruction with vascularized bone graft. (2/419)

BACKGROUND: The most commonly used tool for maxillo-mandibular fixation to the patient who underwent reconstruction using a vascularized bone graft after mandibular resection is a dental arch-bar. However, the occlusal relationship achieved by this method is not ideal. Different from the dental arch-bar, the multi-bracket appliance which is frequently used in orthodontic treatment can control the position of each individual tooth three dimensionally. Thus, this appliance was applied for maxillo-mandibular fixation to patients who underwent mandibular reconstruction using a vascularized bone graft. METHODS: A multi-bracket appliance was applied to three patients. Prior to the surgery, standard edgewise brackets were bonded to the teeth in the maxilla and in the remaining mandible. After mandibular resection, wires for maxillo-mandibular fixation were applied. The harvested bone was then carefully fixed with miniplates to maintain the occlusion. The multi-bracket appliance was worn for 3 months when the wound contraction became mild. RESULTS: All three cases demonstrated stable and good occlusion. They also demonstrated satisfactory post-surgical facial appearance. CONCLUSIONS: Compared to conventional dental arch-bars, a multi-bracket appliance offers improved management of mandibular reconstruction. Firstly, its properties are helpful in maintaining occlusion of the remaining dentition accurately in bone grafting procedure as well as protecting against postsurgical wound contraction. Secondly, the multi-bracket appliance keeps the oral cavity clean without periodontal injury. As a result, stable occlusion of the residual teeth and good facial appearance were obtained.  (+info)

Thermal image analysis of electrothermal debonding of ceramic brackets: an in vitro study. (3/419)

This study used modern thermal imaging techniques to investigate the temperature rise induced at the pulpal well during thermal debonding of ceramic brackets. Ceramic brackets were debonded from vertically sectioned premolar teeth using an electrothermal debonding unit. Ten teeth were debonded at the end of a single 3-second heating cycle. For a further group of 10 teeth, the bracket and heating element were left in contact with the tooth during the 3-second heating cycle and the 6-second cooling cycle. The average pulpal wall temperature increase for the teeth debonded at the end of the 3-second heating cycle was 16.8 degrees C. When the heating element and bracket remained in contact with the tooth during the 6-second cooling cycle an average temperature increase of 45.6 degrees C was recorded.  (+info)

Super pulse CO2 laser for bracket bonding and debonding. (4/419)

A super pulse and a normal pulse CO2 laser were used to carry out enamel etching and bracket debonding in vitro and in vivo. The shear bond strength of the orthodontic brackets attached to laser-etched and conventional chemically-etched extracted premolars was measured. The pulp cavity temperature was also measured using the same laser irradiation conditions as the shear test. Both super pulse and normal pulse CO2 laser etching resulted in a lower shear bond strength (super pulse: 6.9 +/- 3.4 kg, normal pulse: 9.7 +/- 5.2 kg) than that of chemical etching (15.3 +/- 2.8 kg). Furthermore, the super pulse CO2 laser was able to create debonding at 2 watts within a period of less than 4 seconds (2.9 +/- 0.9 seconds). The super pulse, when irradiating the ceramic brackets from above, during debonding showed a 1.4 degrees C temperature increase in the dental pulp at 2 watts and an increase of 2.1 degrees C at 3 watts. While etching, directly irradiating the enamel surface at 3 watts, the dental pulp showed a temperature increase of 3.5 degrees C. These temperature increases were within the physiologically acceptable limits of the pulp. These results indicate that, in orthodontic treatments, super pulse CO2 laser debonding is more useful than laser etching.  (+info)

Influence of archwire and bracket dimensions on sliding mechanics: derivations and determinations of the critical contact angles for binding. (5/419)

There is every indication that classical friction controls sliding mechanics below some critical contact angle, theta c. Once that angle is exceeded, however, binding and notching phenomena increasingly restrict sliding mechanics. Using geometric archwire and bracket parameters, the theta c is calculated as the boundary between classical frictional behaviour and binding-related phenomena. What these equations predict is independent of practitioner or technique. From these derivations two dimensionless numbers are also identified as the bracket and the engagement index. The first shows how the width of a bracket compares to its Slot; the second indicates how completely the wire fills the Slot. When nominal wire and bracket dimensions are calculated for both standard Slots, the maximum theta c theoretically equals 3.7 degrees. Thus, knowledge of the archwire or bracket alone is insufficient; knowledge of the archwire-bracket combination is necessary for theta c to be calculated. Once calculated, sliding mechanics should be initiated only after the contact angle, theta, approaches the characteristic value of theta c for the particular archwire-bracket combination of choice--that is, when theta approximately theta c.  (+info)

An ex vivo investigation into the bond strength of orthodontic brackets and adhesive systems. (6/419)

The aim of this study was to compare the shear bond strength of Adhesive Precoated Brackets (APC) with that of two types of uncoated bracket bases, Straight-Wire and Dyna-Lock. Two types of orthodontic adhesives were used, Transbond XT and Right-On. Three different curing times were evaluated with the APC brackets in order to find the best. Adhesive remnants on the enamel surface following debond were evaluated using the Adhesive Remnant Index (Artun and Bergland, 1984). Bond strengths ranged from 11.00 to 22.08 MPa. For both types of brackets Transbond produced a significant increase in bond strength compared to Right-On. The Dyna-Lock/Right-On combination produced the poorest results. APC brackets cured for 40 s had similar bond strengths to uncoated brackets fixed by means of Transbond. Overall, 79 per cent of specimens had less than half the tooth surface covered with adhesive following debond. Significantly more adhesive remained on tooth surfaces following debond of the Straight-Wire/Right-On group than any other bracket/adhesive combination. Bond strengths were higher with light-cured Transbond than with chemically-cured Right-On. When Transbond is used in association with APC brackets a 40-second cure time is recommended.  (+info)

The effects of sandblasting on the bond strength of molar attachments--an in vitro study. (7/419)

This study evaluated the effect of sandblasting foil mesh molar tube bases on the shear bond strength obtained when bonding to first molar teeth. Fifty-two recently extracted first molar teeth were etched with 35 per cent phosphoric acid gel for 30 seconds. Twenty-six sandblasted 'A' Company molar tube attachments and 26 non-sandblasted attachments were then bonded to the teeth using Phase II orthodontic bonding resin. After storage in water for 24 hours at 37 degrees C, the specimens were debonded in a direction parallel to the buccal surface. Survival analysis using the Weibull function revealed that for a 90 per cent probability of survival, the predicted bond strengths for sandblasted and non-sandblasted bases were 1.76 and 1.66 MPa, respectively. For larger shear stresses, the probabilities of bond survival with sandblasted molar tubes were greater than with non-sandblasted molar tubes although the differences were small, which may be explained by the large proportion of bond failures which occurred at the resin to enamel interface in both groups. It was concluded that sandblasting foil mesh bases is likely to provide only a minimal improvement in clinical performance when bonding to molar teeth.  (+info)

Distortion of metallic orthodontic brackets after clinical use and debond by two methods. (8/419)

The objective of this paper was to compare distortion of the tie wings and bases of metallic orthodontic brackets following clinical use and after debond by either of two methods, and took the form of a prospective random control trial. Five-hundred-and-seven brackets were debonded using either bracket removing pliers or a lift off debonding instrument (LODI). By a system of random allocation contralateral opposing quadrants were debonded with a 0.019 x 0.025-inch archwire either in place or removed. After debond brackets were tested for slot closure by the fit of rectangular test wires from 0.016 x 0.022 to 0.021 x 0.025 inch in size. The LODI produced few slot closures sufficient to affect the fit of all but the largest test wire. Bracket removing pliers used after removal of the archwire produced significantly greater numbers of distorted brackets in response to testing with all but the largest wire. With the 0.021 x 0.025 inch wire in place the presence or absence of the archwire at the time of debond made no difference to the number of slot closures. Ten per cent of the brackets debonded using bracket removing pliers had distorted bases, no base damage was produced by the LODI. The use of bracket removing pliers at debond caused significantly more slot closures than use of the LODI. When bracket removing pliers are used the archwire should be left in place at the time of debond since this reduces the number of distortions.  (+info)

A system automatically adjusts an orthodontic bracket to a desired occlusal height on a tooth within a 3D environment. The system allows a practitioner to specify a desired occlusal height at which to place the bracket on the tooth. The practitioner may choose the desired occlusal height from a standardized set of occlusal heights or may create a customized occlusal height to meet a patients particular needs. Based on the desired occlusal height, the system automatically adjusts the placement of the orthodontic bracket to the desired occlusal height on the tooth within the 3D environment. The system then generates a visual representation the resulting bracket placement within the 3D environment.
This study evaluates and compares the effects of enamel prophylaxis using either oil-free pumice or oil-containing prophylaxis paste on the incidence of bracket failure in orthodontic patients.. Forty-six orthodontic patients participated in this prospective clinical trial. A cross-mouth method was used in each patient, in which two diagonal quadrants (i.e. upper right and lower left or vice versa) were randomly assigned to the pumice group and the contralateral diagonal quadrants to the Prophy Paste (R) group. A total of 836 teeth were bonded using Transbond XT (3M Unitek) and monitored for an average of 23 months for bond failure. Chi-square analysis was used to compare the number of bracket failures between the groups.. Overall, 26 bond failures occurred by the end of the trial. Fifteen bracket failures were observed in the Prophy Paste group (3.6%) and 11 in the pumice group (2.6%). The failure rates were fairly evenly distributed between the upper and lower jaws. There were no statistically ...
The aim of this in vitro study was to compare the shear bond strength (SBS) and failure modes of a conventional resin-based composite with a recently developed amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP)-containing orthodontic composite system. Forty freshly extracted human maxillary premolar teeth were randomly divided into two equal groups. Conventional composite (group 1; Transbond-XT®; 3M Unitek) and ACP-containing orthodontic composite (group 2; Aegis-Ortho®; Harry J. Bosworth Co.) were used for bonding ceramic orthodontic brackets. The SBS of these brackets were measured and recorded in megapascals (MPa). Adhesive remnant index (ARI) scores were determined after bracket failure. Data were analysed with a Students t-test for two independent variables and Pearsons chi-square tests.. Statistical analysis showed that the bond strength of group 1 (mean: 36.7 ± 6.8 MPa) was significantly higher than group 2 (mean: 24.2 ± 5.4 MPa; P , 0.01). Although a greater percentage of the fractures were ...
Objectives: The present study was deigned to investigate different polishing techniques used to restore feldspathic porcelain surface regarding surface roughness after debonding of orthodontic brackets. Methods: Metal discs of 1 cm diameter and 1 mm thickness (n=60) were prepared from Wiron 99 non-precious alloy (BEGO Bremer Goldschägerei with Herbst GmbH& Co. Bremen. Germany). The discs were veneered from one side by 1 mm thickness Vita 3D Master feldspathic porcelain (Vita zhan fabric H. Rauter GmbH & Co. KG. Germany). Orthodontic metal brackets were bonded at the center of each disc (3M, Unitek), and then discs were water stored for 30 days before debonding. Brackets were debonded using bracket removing pliers, and resin was removed with a 12-fluted carbide bur. The prepared specimens were divided into 3 groups (n=20) representing different porcelain refinishing techniques as follows; group 1: using (Shofu, USA) porcelain veneer kit, group 2: using (Ultradent, USA) porcelain finishing kit, ...
The recent paradigm shift in orthodontics towards non-extraction treatment has been facilitated with the introduction of newer appliance systems such as self-ligating brackets. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of moderate to severe dental crowding on changes in incisor position and arch dimension in patients treated non-extraction using the Damon passive self-ligating system. It was hypothesized that patients do not experience a significant amount of labial movement of the incisors due to space being gained through arch expansion. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Previous orthodontic records of 15 patients with a mean pre-treatment age of 14.4 years were obtained at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Orthodontics. The inclusion criteria were: treatment with Damon Q (Ormco) passive self-ligating brackets, class I malocclusion treated non-extraction, severe maxillary dental crowding (,6 mm), and a complete permanent dentition. The initial and final cephalograms and ...

Many adults do not consider orthodontic treatment because of the idea that braces attract too much attention and are just not age appropriate. This is no longer true as the advancements in orthodontics have led to the formation of brackets which can hardly be seen. Ceramic brackets are an innovation in orthodontics. They are also known as tooth-colored brackets due to the fact that they appear transparent. Ceramic brackets have made orthodontics treatment more cosmetically appealing than ever before. You no longer need to have the train track metal braces as ceramic brackets are barely visible. Ceramic brackets are also available as self-ligating brackets, which ensure that you receive comfort at every level of your treatment.. ...
As reported in the results, the null hypothesis of the study was partially accepted. In fact, the present investigation demonstrated that when using the indirect technique, the bond failure rate is not significantly different than when the direct technique is used.. These results are in agreement with Deahl et al. [15] and Thiyagarajah et al. [16] that found no difference in detachment rate in the two techniques. Nevertheless, we can notice that the percentage of bond failure reported in the present study (3.54% for direct technique, 5.79% for indirect one) is higher for both techniques than the percentage reported by Deahl (1.17% ± 3.62% and 1.21% ± 3.81%, respectively) as well as those reported by Thiyagarajah (2.9% for direct technique, 2.2% for indirect one). The reasons of this difference can be found in the numerous differences in the study drawing: type of bracket and adhesive system, procedure used for the transfer tray confection, number of patients included in the sample and study ...
Doctors Ask: Brackets can be classified according to various features. But it is much more important to understand what the client is aiming at, how and by what term he would like to reach it. For example, aesthetic braces are often chosen by those who are ashamed to wear metal toothpicks. Today there is a huge amount of promotional materials that tell about the benefits of one way or another of equalizing teeth: aesthetic braces, brackets self-lubricating, inner braces.
Designed with both the patient and orthodontist in mind, our innovative 3M™ Clarity™ Ultra Self-Ligating Brackets provide treatment control and predictability from start to finish.
Second is these seat brackets I made. These are a small improvement which made a huge difference for me. I had been buying chair cushions to sit on that raise my seat height to a comfortable level. I realized the issue really was with the length of my calves. The bracket is flat steel with two holes drilled in it, installed to raise the front of the seat. The first set of brackets I made were too long at 1½ as they interfered with the ergonomics of the seat-back reclining angle. The one inch brackets corrected the length from the end of the bottom seat cushion to the pedals in a way that the chair cushions never could. Its hard to see in the third image but the seat cushion is a little higher. I suppose as the front of the seat only is raised that there may be more room for my femur-to-butt length on the seat as well but thats just speculation.. ...

In the initial alignment phase of orthodontic treatment using edgewise appliances, light round archwires are usually ligated to each bracket. Archwires are deflected between adjacent brackets to create orthodontic force. The magnitude of force delivered to each bracket affects the efficiency of tooth movement and the possibility of root resorption. , It is, therefore, crucial to understand the characteristics of the force delivered to each bracket.. In addition to interbracket distance, , bracket width, , bracket design, , and archwire diameter, , the ligation method , , is a significant factor that affects the magnitude of force. According to a recent questionnaire study, 63% of orthodontists reported using a self-ligation bracket. Self-ligation has become widely used by orthodontists as well as conventional elastic ligation (CL).. Previous in vitro studies measured the direction and magnitude of force at the bracket only for the displaced tooth and compared these measurements among different ...

The Carrière SLB is the new star of self ligating brackets. It is a completely passive bracket that permits a biologic looseness of the wire inside the full four-wall lumen. The Working Hypothesis for the design of the Carrière SLB has been to avoid the binding of the arch to the bracket, so the periodontal tissue does not become in a global state of war reaction. With the Carrière SLB self-ligation system, the forces applied for adequate orthodontic treatment are not interfered by binding forces normally present from elastic o-rings or metal ties. The result is minimal friction and improved sliding mechanics. Teeth are able to move FASTER with LOWER forces and fewer adjustments making the treatment more comfortable and enjoyable for the patient ...
Objectives: To investigate the efficacy of a new orthodontic bonding system that incorporates the primer solution in the adhesive. Materials and Methods: 90 anterior bovine teeth were divided in three groups: in Group I, brackets were bonded with Transbond XT system, in Group II with GC Ortho Connect which incorporates the primer in the adhesive, and in Group III, a single layer of primer was applied on the teeth before bonding the brackets with GC Ortho Connect. After a 24-hour latency period, Shear Bond Strength (SBS) and Adhesive Remnant Index (ARI) were measured. In cases with remnants left mainly on the bracket base, energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectrometry was performed in order to determine the presence of calcium particles. Selected cases were examined with Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) analysis and in nanometer scale with a confocal visible light microscope (μsurf revolver, NanoFocus AG, Germany). Results: The mean SBS values were 7.25 ± 0.58 MPa for Group I, 6.57 ± 0.50 MPa for Group

Brackets are the parts of braces attached to teeth with a special adhesive. They are generally positioned in the center of each tooth. The bracket can be knocked off if the student has eaten one of those hard or crunchy foods orthodontic patients are instructed to avoid, or if the mouth is struck while at play. (Encourage all students, especially those with braces, to wear a protective mouth guard while playing sports.. If the bracket is off center, the adhesive may have failed. Call the parents-and recommend that they immediately notify the orthodontist, who will determine the course of action.. If the loose bracket has rotated on the wire and is sticking out, and the patient cannot immediately be taken to the orthodontist, you can do a temporary fix to alleviate discomfort and prevent further damage. But take care to prevent swallowing or other injury.. To put the bracket back in place, use sterile tweezers to slide the bracket along the wire until it is between two teeth. Rotate the bracket ...

Maintaining excellent hygiene can be a challenge during orthodontic treatment. However, this problem can be addressed with the use of 3M ESPEs Vanish™ XT extended contact varnish, combined with ongoing daily brushing with a fluoride toothpaste. Vanish XT immediately creates a protective barrier on the tooth and provides a long-term release of fluoride, calcium and phosphate. The varnish can be applied either directly following bracket placement or later, depending on the patients level of risk, and its effectiveness continues for up to six months after placement.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of treatment of mandibular crowding with self-ligating and conventional brackets on dental arch variables. Fifty-six patients were selected from a pool of subjects satisfying the following inclusion criteria: non-extraction treatment in the mandibular or maxillary arches, eruption of all mandibular teeth, no spaces and an irregularity index greater than 2 mm in the mandibular arch, and no adjunct treatment such as etxra- or intraoral appliances. The patients were assigned to two groups: one group received treatment with the self-ligating bracket and the other with a conventional edgewise appliance, both with a 0.022 inch slot. Lateral cephalometric radiographs obtained at the beginning (T1) and end (T2) of treatment were used to assess the alteration in mandibular incisor inclination, and measurements of intercanine and intermolar widths were made on dental casts to investigate changes associated with the correction. The results were ...

As illustrated, it will be appreciated that the resilient biasing member provides a resilient or biasing force which acts in a ...
The video describes the process of bracket gluing in detail. The gluing of brackets refers to the attachment of metal brackets at the beginning of the process of affixing fixed braces on teeth. In certain other orthodontic apparatus such as head gears, metal straps are preferred over metal brackets as the former tensile and has more stability. There are multiple steps in the process of gluing braces. First comes etching, in which a special gel is applied to the tooth surface to roughen the surface and increase the surface area to be glued. After the gel has been rinsed by a water jet, the roughened surface can be seen in a different colour. The glue is then applied on the roughened surface of the tooth and special orthodontic pliers are used to place the brackets on the tooth very carefully to avoid unwanted tooth movements post procedure. The wire arch is inserted after all the brackets have been placed. Plastic rings or elastic prevent the movement of wire arches in the metal brackets. A layer of

Objectives: The objective was to assess the shear bond strength (SBS) of composite resins on stainless steel brackets immediately bonded to previously bleached teeth with 35% hydrogen peroxide and to compare the neutralization effect of various antioxidant agents on the bond strength after bleaching. Materials and Methods: One hundred sound human maxillary premolars were used for the study. Teeth were divided into 5 groups (n = 20); Group 1 (control), Group 2 (bleach treatment), Group 3 (sodium ascorbate treatment), Group 4 (tocopherol acetate treatment), and Group 5 (retinol acetate treatment). Teeth in Group 3, 4, and 5 were treated as in Group 2, but after that and before bleaching received treatment with sodium ascorbate, tocopherol acetate, and retinol acetate, respectively. Subsequently, teeth were bonded with stainless steel brackets (Ormco) using 3M Transbond XT. After 24 h, each specimen was loaded into a universal testing machine to determine the SBS at debonding. The data were exposed ...

Wire poking? Loose bracket? No problem. Please contact us immediately if you notice anything broken, loose or uncomfortable. Calling ahead gives us the ability to schedule an emergency visit for you so your issue can be addressed as soon as possible.. If you have a wire that is poking, you can use the orthodontic wax we provide you to shield off the cheek or gum tissue. The eraser end of a pencil, the cotton tip of a Q-Tip, sugarless gum or a cotton ball can also be useful in covering the end of the wire. If that doesnt help, you may also use fingernail clippers that have been washed and rubbed with alcohol to trim the wire. Regardless of what you choose to do, please make sure to call the office to schedule an emergency visit.. If you notice a loose bracket, you can either let it be in its original spot and wait until Monday, or move it closer to the next stable bracket. That often keeps the bracket from rolling around in the wire. Orthodontic wax can also help stabilize the bracket until your ...
Im not exactly sure why, but thats what the orthodontist said would work the best. Possibly because I have the clear brackets and an overjet, Ive heard you shouldnt put the clear brackets on bottom because of the top teeth hit them it wears down the enamel. I just had my 16 week appointment today and they gave me rubber bands to help close the gaps from my premolars extractions, but they dont hook to the lower arch yet, they go from bracket 3 to bracket 5 on top. They said next appointment they would put hooks on the lower for the elastics. Everything seems to be moving along nicely so far ...
Direct bonding of orthodontic brackets is an established procedure and has lead to increasing number of light-cured bonding materials produced with ever-increasing bond strength and ease of delivery. However, considerably less attention is given to biocompatibility of these materials. Both in vivo and in vitro studies indicate orthodontic bonding agents are cytotoxic. Spectrophotometric analysis revealed that these resins contained a great amount of potentially toxic, leachable, un-polymerized material, even when fully cured. Hypothesis: Different light-cured bonding agents may have different cytotoxic effects depending on their chemistry. Objective: Compare and analyze the toxicity of three different light-cured bonding agents to a population of gingival cells as measured by cell growth, and viability in vitro. Method: Light Bond®, MonoLok®, and Transbond XT® orthodontic adhesives were tested. Human gingival cells were obtained from extracted third molars, pooled, and expanded until needed. ...
Having an attractive smile is important to most people. Crooked and misaligned teeth can be a great source of embarrassment and social discomfort.

In-Ovation® lingual braces have proven very effective for patients requiring less than 6mm of tooth movement.. How can In-Ovation® L MTM benefit me?. In addition to being quick and invisible, In-Ovation braces are at the forefront of technology. The archwire (the wire connecting the brace brackets) never needs to ...
Orthodontic appliances can be made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to a corrected position. This is a great time to wear braces! Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can choose brackets that are clear or metallic color. You can choose the color of the ties that hold the wire in brackets. Wires are also less noticeable than they used to be and the latest materials move teeth faster with less discomfort to patients.. ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare enamel micro-crack characteristics of adult patients before and after removal of metal brackets. After the examination with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), 45 extracted human teeth were divided into three groups of equal size. The length and width of the longest enamel micro-crack were measured for all the teeth before and after removal of metal brackets. The changes in the location of the micro-cracks were also evaluated. New enamel micro-cracks were found in 6 of 15 (40 per cent) examined teeth. Greatest changes in the width of enamel micro-cracks after debonding procedure appear in the cervical third of the tooth. On the basis of this result, the dentist must pay extra care and attention to this specific area of enamel during removal of metal brackets in adult patients.. ...

Selective grinding, occlusal adjustment, and bracket relocation should solve the problem.
Water in the rear footwells and damp/mold appearing on the rear seats: This is usually caused by corrosion of the seat belt mounting brackets that sit under the bodywork that forms the rear seats. The original brackets are mild steel and rust away to nothing, leaving a poor seal where the mounting bolts go through the bodywork. Replace the brackets and seal them properly with silicone and the problems should go away. (Missing or corroded brackets are, of course, dangerous as the seatbelts arent fixed properly and could tear loose in a crash - they should also be an MOT fail, but most testers dont seem to know about them. ...

Engine mounts and mounting brackets play a critical role in determining NVH performance of a vehicle. A lot of work has been done in the area of virtual simulation using FE models to study engine mounting system performance and its impact on vehicle level performance. An overall approach towards engine mounting system validation at vehicle level is also very critical to validate simulation results in a prototype based on which further refinement work will be carried. In this paper a detailed procedure for engine mount and mounting bracket physical validation at vehicle level is presented. Various tests to be performed at vehicle level to quantify engine mount and mounting bracket performance parameters is discussed in detail along with measurement procedures and techniques.

  • From this perspective, in order to plan orthodontic decompensation of mandibular incisors, in Class III hyperdivergent patients, the orthodontist should consider, besides the amount of incisor crowding, the gingival biotype and the effects of labial incisor movement on the buccal and lingual bone plates. (
  • The Dental Health Center seeks to find a Orthodontic Dental Assistant who provides quality dental care to patients. (
  • Objectives: The present study was deigned to investigate different polishing techniques used to restore feldspathic porcelain surface regarding surface roughness after debonding of orthodontic brackets. (
  • Study of the mean ARI (Adhesive Remnant Index) values for the non-thermocycled crown/adhesive combinations shows that brackets bonded with Rely-XTM Unicem 2 to non-thermocycled porcelain veneered zirconia crowns failed entirely at the ceramic/adhesive interface and for all the other non-thermocycled ceramic/adhesive combinations most of the failures of the bond (70%) occurred at the bracket/adhesive interface, ie. (
  • Adhesive remnant index (ARI) scores were determined after bracket failure. (
  • ROTH BRACKETS METALIC - ECCO FDA and CE certifiedFeatures:Every single bracket comes with perfect Torque - Offset and Width.Low friction wire slot. (
  • the bracket fabricating step includes the steps of fabricating the brackets each having a base and then forming the slot in the bracket at the rotation angle relative to the base. (
  • 2. The ceramic bracket of claim 1 further comprising a plurality of rear indentations extending into said bracket from said first surface. (
  • This report evaluated the effects of orthodontic decompensation on the lingual and buccal bone plates, evaluated by CBCT, in a young adult patient with Class III malocclusion and hyperdivergent pattern, who was surgically treated. (
  • Future research should focus on the generation of a consensus document allowing selection of the type of orthodontic approach not only conditioned to the esthetic requirements of the patient but also considering the characteristics of the malocclusion. (
