Reconditioning of Debonded Pure Titanium Bracket (Using Micro-etcher)


Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2008 in the subject Medicine - Dentistry, University of Mosul (Dental college), language: English, abstract: Aims: To evaluate the degree of change that may occur in reconditioning the titanium bracket via micro- etcher. Materials and Methods: The sample consisted of (10) pure titanium brackets for each of control and reconditioning brackets. The parameters of the reconditioned bracket (slot width, slot depth, inter-wing gap, labio-lingual angle and base curvature angle) were measured and compared with that of the control bracket. Results: The results showed no significant difference between the control and reconditioned brackets of the slot parameters (width, depth, inter-win gap, labio-lingual angle) and the bracket's base curvature angle. While, the tensile bond strength of the control brackets showed significantly higher mean value as compared with the recycled group. Conclusions: The reconditioning of pure titanium brackets is recommended for reuse in the orthodontic treatment after sterilization
