Comparative evaluation of the efficacy & pain perception using four types of orthodontic separators
To evaluate the amount of separation produced by four types of orthodontic separators viz. the elastomeric separator, Kesling separator, Kansal separator and Dumbbell separator and determine the patient’s perception of pain and discomfort caused by these four types of separators. Evaluate the time taken to achieve adequate separation and record the number of different separators lost. Time taken for adequate separation was significant in all the 4 separators; dumbbell being the fastest followed by elastomeric separator.
