About

The aim of the study is to validate a novel sensor intended to measure the wearing time of orthodontic elastics in patients with multibracket appliances. The newly developped sensor will be tested in 42 patients over a period of 6 months

Full description

Fixed multibracket appliances are used to correct tooth and jaw malocclusions. Usually, elastics are inserted between the upper and lower jaws to adjust the position of the jaws in relation to each other. The wearing time of the elastics determines the duration of the treatment and the quality of the treatment results. While micro-sensors are increasingly used for removable appliances to monitor patient compliance, there is still no such possibility for fixed appliances. This gap is to be closed with the planned 'OrthoKontrol' (intraoral mini-sensor). This is intended to measure and record the wearing time of the elastics.
