Abstract

Aim: Hydrogen peroxide mouth-rinse (1.5%) had been studied as an agent in this study to evaluate the reduction in discoloration of esthetic ligation methods after intra-oral exposure and also to observe their effect on periodontium.
Material and Method: In 30 patients undergoing orthodontic treatment, split-mouth design was employed for clear elastomeric modules and Teflon coated ligature wire, wherein AO was placed in the first quadrant, 3M in second quadrant, Teflon in the third quadrant and TP in the fourth quadrant. They were tested at three different time period: As received state, after 3 weeks of intra oral exposure and after 3 weeks of intra oral exposure with hydrogen peroxide mouthwash twice daily. Their change in color dimensions were observed through digital SLR camera.
Result: After intra oral exposure of 21 days, ∆E (change in color) for first quadrant is 51.30±0.43, for second quadrant is 47.24±0.82, for third quadrant is 3.77±0.32, for fourth quadrant is 43.24±0.57. After intraoral exposure of 21 days with Hydrogen peroxide mouthwash, ∆E observed for First Quadrant is -14.48±0.43, for Second Quadrant is -11.64±0.23, for Third Quadrant is ∆E= -2.30±0.40 and for Fourth Quadrant is -16.89±0.82.
Conclusion: Within the limitations of the study, it was concluded that hydrogen peroxide revealed statistically significant potential in reducing discoloration as well as gingival inflammation. Also, Teflon coated ligature wire had shown most superior properties in terms of resistance to discoloration. So, it can be the preferred choice for aesthetic ligation.
