Show Summary Details



The aim of this study was to compare the in vitro bond strength, to bovine enamel measured in shear, of the orthodontic adhesives Lee Insta-bond (LiB), Rely-a-Bond (RaB), Right-on (Ro), Concise precoating method (Cc), Concise mixed method (Cab), Super-C (Sc), and Orthon (Or), and of the glass ionomer cement Ketac-Cem (KC). The fracture surfaces after debonding were also examined in order to determine the sites of failure.

The results indicate that there is a significant difference between the shear bond strength obtained with the different adhesives so that the mean shear bond strength decreases in the order {Ro˜Cab˜Sc}>{LiB˜RaB˜Cc}>Or>KC. Moreover, for Cab and So it was found that the shear bond strength varies depending on the location on the bovine tooth. The failure site was essentially at the resin-bracket interface, except for Concise, where only 50 per cent of the cases failed at the resin-bracket interface.
