TRIAL DESCRIPTION
Public title EFFECT OF ORAL HYGIENE INSTRUCTION MOBILE APPLICATION ON THE ORAL HEALTH OF PATIENTS UNDERGOING FIXED ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT: A RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Official scientific title THE EFFECT OF ORAL HYGIENE INSTRUCTION MOBILE APPLICATION ON THE ORAL HEALTH OF PATIENTS UNDERGOING FIXED ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
Brief summary describing the background
and objectives of the trial
SUMMARY Maintaining good oral health status during fixed orthodontic treatment is absolutely important, because patients undergoing fixed orthodontic appliances therapy have an increased risk of biofilm accumulation as a result of difficulty in biofilm control. Several interventions to improve oral hygiene compliance such as verbal instructions, written instructions, illustrations using catalogs, videos, telephone calls, text messages, chat groups and oral hygiene mobile application have been reported. The aims of this study are to develop and validate a mobile application and assess the effect on oral hygiene status, gingival health and white spot lesion in patients undergoing fixed appliance therapy. Design: A single-blinded randomized controlled trial with two parallel arms. Setting
