Abstract
To evaluate the amount of separation produced by two types of orthodontic separators viz. the elastomeric separator and kansal separator and determine the patient’s perception of pain and discomfort caused by these two types of separators. The patient was evaluated for 5 days for amount of separation, pain perception and loss of separator in each quadrant. The amount of separation of each maxillary first molar, was measured mesially and distally with a leaf gauge (sensitivity 5/100mm). Pain and discomfort was assessed with the help of visual analogue scale (VAS). There was significant difference between elastomeric and kansal separator in perception of pain.
