Bacteremic capacity of a minimally invasive flapless accelerated orthodontic technique

Journal of the World Federation of OrthodontistsVolume 6, Issue 3, September 2017, Pages 105 –108AbstractObjectiveThe aim of present prospective cohort study was to investigate prevalence of bacteremia after a minimally invasive flapless accelerated orthodontic technique.Material and MethodsThe sample consisted of 30 orthodontic patients (18 female, 12 male; mean age: 19.57 ± 0.5 years). All patients had Class I malocclusion and had fixed orthodontic appliance treatment. The flapless technique was performed with a reinforced scalpel on the labial aspect of the mandibular incisors to separate the interproximal cortices transmucosally. Using aseptic technique, two blood samples of 20 mL were collected before and 30 to 60 seconds after the flapless technique. The blood was aseptically inoculated into culture bottles and incubated at 35 °C for 2 weeks. Medium alterations showing bacterial growth were investigated by using Gram staining. The bacteria were identified by VITEK 2 (bioM érieux, Marcy l'Etoile, France) automated microbiology identification system. The result was analyzed statistically using the McNemar test, withP
