Abstract

Background: Because of the demands for aesthetic orthodontic appliances have increased, aesthetic archwires have been widely used to meet patient's aesthetic needs. The color stability of aesthetic archwires is clinically important, any staining or discoloration will affect patient’s acceptance and satisfaction. This study was designed to evaluate the color stability of different types of aesthetic archwires after immersion into different types of mouth washes.Materials and methods: Four brands of nickel titanium coated aesthetic arch wires: Epoxy coated (Orthotechnology and G&H) and Teflon coated (Dany and Hubit) were evaluated after 1 week, 3 weeks and 6 weeks of immersion into two types of mouthwashes (Listerine with alcohol and Listerine without alcohol). Color change measurements were performed by using spectrophotometer VITA Easyshade Compact according to the commission Internationale de I’Eclairage L*a*b* color space system.Results: The results of this study showed that there were highly significant differences in color change values among all brands of aesthetic archwires at various immersion media. On the other hand, a significant difference was found between Dany and Orthotechnology aesthetic archwires at 1 week immersion in distilled water. Listerine with alcohol mouthwash produced more color changes of aesthetic archwires and color change value increases with the time of immersion.Conclusions: All brands of aesthetic archwires showed different degrees of color changes but most of these changes were not visible or clinically acceptable

Abstract

Background: Coated aesthetic archwires are currently the existing solutions for the esthetic problem, but the color ofthese archwires tends to change overtime. This study was aimed to evaluate the color stability of different types ofesthetic archwires from four different companies at different time periods after immersion of two different stainingdrinks which are tea and Pepsi cola.Materials and methods: 48 specimens were prepared, each specimen contains 10 aesthetic archwires; and weredivided according to type of solution into two groups: A (tea) &B (Pepsi cola); each group contained 24 specimens(12 specimens were immersed in the staining solution as 4 specimens for each time intervals and 12 specimens wereimmersed in distilled water as control group). Each subgroup contains one specimen from each company. Colormeasurements were performed by means of a computed spectrophotometer according to the CommissionInternationale de I’Eclairage L*a*b* system, and color changes (ΔE*) and National Bureau of Standards units.Results: Both staining solution caused color change in variable degree and the higher amount of color instability wasfound for the archwires from the Hubit Company while the least amount of color change was for the archwires fromthe Orthotechnology Company.Conclusion: The tea caused highly significant change on the aesthetic archwires which is higher than the effect ofthe Pepsi cola
