White spot lesions (WSL) and demineralization is a common complication after the orthodontic treatment. This study aims to explore and evaluate the clinical efficacy of fluoride and-fluoride, releasing self-etching adhesives on enamel demineralization and assess the influence of saliva as a predisposing factor for WSL. The study design is a randomized clinical trial. A sample size of 50 patients was taken, there are two groups for the study-Group A (Control Group)-Teeth on which orthodontic brackets are bonded with nonfluoride releasing self-etching adhesive (G Bond) which will be the control group. Group B (Experimental Group)-Teeth on which orthodontic brackets are bonded with Fluoride releasing self-etching adhesive (Bond Force) which will be the experimental group. Materials containing fluoride help to improve the oral health of the experimental group. However, using Paired t-test get mean and standard deviation values also estimate the correlation coefficient values; the mean effect is improved for non-fluoride patients. Products such as topical Fluoride are not the only factors that help to control the incidence of WSL.
