Abstract

AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of the study is to compare the in vivo efficiency of MI varnish containing casein phosphopeptide (CPP) and amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) and Fluori top containing sodium fluoride (5% NaF) in prevention and remineralisation of white spot lesions around orthodontic brackets at 28th and 56th day after bonding. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 30 patients were selected and divided into 2 groups I (MI Varnish) & II (Fluoritop varnish) of 15 patients in each group. All the Patients were bonded and then varnish was applied around the brackets. Right side upper and lower first premolar were taken as control group and left side upper and lower first premolar as experimental group. 14, 24 teeth were extracted on 28th day after bonding and 34, 44 teeth after 56th day of bonding. Samples were collected and sent to laboratory for evaluation of surface micro hardness (SMH). RESULTS: Based on the statistics results, there was significant decrease in demineralisation and increase in remineralisation of white spot lesion (WSL) after the application of varnish. No statistical significance was found between effectiveness of MI varnish and fluori top except in cervical region. CONCLUSION: By our study we concluded that no statistical significance was found between effectiveness of MI varnish and fluori top except in cervical region where MI varnish was found to be more effective than fluori top in preventing WSLs.
