ABSTRACT
Orthodontic therapy with fixed appliances bears a high risk of plaque accumulation, resulting in demineralization and new carious lesions. Rather than treat incipient lesions in orthodontic patients, most general dental practitioners decide to await future developments. A new concept for comprehensive restorative and endodontic treatment is presented, and its orthodontic implications are discussed.

    Interdental plaque-pH telemetry measures, in vivo, H-ion concentration at the level of the enamel surface under an undisturbed layer of plaque. It is better suited to test non- or hypo-acidogenic products than are rat caries tests. These products can, with a very high probability, be considered...
