Abstract: Bacterial plaque is an etiologic factor in the development of gingival inflammation and periodontitis. The presence of orthodontic bands and brackets influences plaque growth and maturation. The purposes of this research were to monitor microbiologic and periodontal changes after placement of orthodontic attachments over a 1-year period and to link these changes to alterations in cytokine concentrations in the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF).
