Results: Pretest and posttest plaque index of conventional toothbrush were 70,94 and 40,20. Pretest and posttest plaque index of orthodontic toothbrush were 65,59 and  23,74. The average difference in  pretest and  posttest plaque index of conventional toothbrush was 30,74 and orthodontic toothbrush was 41,84.
