Awareness Regarding the Use of Different Types of Orthodontic Appliances among Undergraduate Students

Author(s): Remmiya Mary Varghese*, Praneeksha

Abstract

Introduction: Dental braces (also known as braces, orthodontic cases, or cases) are devices used in orthodontics that align
and straighten teeth and help position them with regard to a person's bite while also aiming to improve dental health. They
are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth,
and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural.
Materials and methods: A questionnaire was designed online using Google docs which consisted of 10 questions. The study
population included 100 undergraduate dental students. Data was statistically analysed using Chi square test.
Results and discussion: From this survey it was evident that the majority of the Undergraduate students prefer removable
appliances more than fixed appliances, and mostly second year dental students prefer removable appliances more than fixed
appliances. The results were statistically significant according to the Chi square test, where p<0.05.
Conclusion: According to the data collected the majority of the participants were from second year and most of them
preferred removable appliances over fixed appliances, but both the appliances have their own pros and cons so both the
appliances can be used in different procedures and cases.
