Abstract

Background: The authors conducted a randomized, single-masked clinical trial involving patients who had completed orthodontic treatment to assess changes in the appearance of white-spot lesions (WSLs) that were treated with resin infiltration. Methods: The authors divided affected teeth into control and treatment groups. In the treatment group, they restored teeth with WSLs by using resin infiltration. They evaluated changes in WSLs photographically by using a visual analog scale (VAS) (0 = no change, 100 = complete disappearance) and area measurements (in square millimeters). The authors analyzed the data by using two-way analysis of variance. Results: The mean VAS ratings for treated teeth demonstrated marked improvement relative to that for control teeth immediately after treatment (67.7 versus 5.2, P
