Also, Brass wire separators cause lower bacterial accumulation and no clinical manifestation of inflammation and swelling.  Besides, it should be considered that it has polished surface and slow separating effect.  According to the results, we should declare that each separator cannot cause accumulation of a specific  type of  microbes.
