Jeta Kiseri Kubati | Gabriela Kjurchieva Chuchkova | Burim Kiseri


Abstract: Introduction: Maintaining teeth in their ideal esthetic and functional positions following treatment is what is often meant by orthodontic retention. These retainers are recommended to prevent mandibular incisor relapse. One of the most crucial treatment phases is retention, although orthodontists are divided on the best designs and materials to use for this phase's retention as well as their relative importance. Methods: A systematic review of the literature considering reviews, clinical studies, original papers and articles from electronic data has been used. Results: different types of reteiners were used in these studies. Multistrained, 0.0215 inch, Direct-Bond Glass Fiber-Reinforced Composite Splints, They compared 0.0215-inch five-stranded wire (PentaOne, Masel; 0.016 ? 0.022-inch dead-soft eight-braided wire (Bond-A-Braid, Reliance; 0.0195-inch dead-soft coaxial wire (Respond, Ormco;) and just in few studies The Memotain retainer (CA-Digital, Mettmann, Germany) that is produced by this technique is manufactured from nickel?titanium wires of 0.014?0.014 inch thickness. The material was compared for different parameters as: Dental Plaque Index, Gingival Index, Dental Calculus Index and Retainer Wire Calculus Index, breakage, de attachment, bonding system etc. Conclusion: Failure types, failure rates, comfort, strength thickness, alloy selection, brakeage, aesthetics and effects on periodontal health are main investigated issues in clinical studies related with bonded retainers. The quality of the available evidence is low according to majority of studies selected for this review paper. No conclusive evidence was found in order to guide orthodontists in the selection of the best protocol and best retainer of choice.
