Background: The aim of this study is to describe oral hygiene habits and periodontal parameters (gingival index and plaque index) in patients wearing fixed orthodontic appliances (FOAs) and to assess the association of plaque index (PI) and gingival index (GI) with age, gender and frequency of tooth brushing. Methods: The sample comprised 100 patients (22.63 ± 7.003) years old, (58 females and 42 males) wearing FOAs. A questionnaire was used to collect patient’s information, including gender, age and oral hygiene habits. Periodontal parameters assessed were PI and GI. Results: 81% of patients were under periodontal monitoring, 89% brushed their teeth twice or three times a day, 98% used a conventional toothbrush and 67% of patients used brushing aids. The mean PI and GI were (0.59 ± 0.47) and (0.44 ± 0.47) respectively. These indexes were less in female gender and older patients and tend to decrease with the augmentation of frequency of tooth brushing. Conclusion: Orthodontic therapy performed with periodontal monitoring and self-care could maintain periodontal health.
