Plaque accumulation on bonded (BN) versus banded (BA) teeth was compared in 252 teeth in 9 healthy adolescents, 11 to 15 years of age, who were undergoing orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances. Plaque index was measured on BN and BA teeth. The measurements were taken at 3 time intervals: 0, 28, and 48 days. At the end of the study, plaque accumulation was found to be significantly higher around BA compared with BN molars.
