The aim of the study was to compare shear bond strengths and friction forces of various self-ligating ceramic brackets. Materials and methods: The present study is divided into two parts. In shear bond strength test, bovine teeth were used as a substitute for human teeth. Five groups of brackets (three ceramic self-ligating brackets including ClippyC, GeniusCrystal, DamonClear2, ClarityAdvanced (conventional ceramic bracket), Damon3MX (metal self-ligating bracket), were used and debonded with 12 brackets in each group. The shear bond strengths ...

Evaluation of Visual Treatment Objective (VTO) Accuracy in Nonsurgical Orthodontic Treatment

Dr. Michael Trieu, Dr. Glen Roberson, Dr. Pramod Sinha, Dr. Calvin Heinrich, Dr. Kishore Chaudhry

Abstract

Background and Objectives

Visual treatment objectives (VTOs) predict the effects that different hard tissue movements can have on a person’s facial soft tissue. This is a powerful tool that can provide doctors with a visual prediction of what a patient would look like through various surgical and orthodontic movements while also providing a means to effectively communicate with patients. Initially, VTOs were drawn by hand, but technological innovations have provided the ability ...
