- The study is devoted to comparative analysis of some technical aspects of braces. According to some reports, the prevalence of dentofacial anomalies in the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania reaches nearly 40 %, which is slightly higher than the level across the Russian Federation in general. Undue detection and treatment of dentofacial anomalies subsequently leads to various complications. The purpose of the study was to conduct a comparative analysis of technical characteristics of braces of various price range made of various materials. The friction force of orthodontic arches in braces and adhesion of various braces to dental enamel was studied. Materials and methods. The study covered metal braces Yoka Ortho, Ortodent-T, DamonClear. The comparison was carried out with ceramic braces - Empower (American Orthodontics), ClarityAdvanced, InspireICE where orthodontic arches were fixed and the friction force was measured at a test bench. Besides, the braces of the specified firms were fixed on teeth extracted for orthodontic indications thus measuring the adhesion force. Results. The study made it possible to conclude that Empower braces (American Orthodontics) have preferable characteristics in comparison with other ceramic samples. It was also found out that ceramic braces have higher adhesion to dental enamel in comparison with metal systems. It was established that out of all studies braces the InspireIce braces have the highest adhesion.
