The effects of 2 years of storage and 6000 thermocycles on the shear bond strength (SBS) of two self-etching adhesive systems were studied. Two self-etching primer (SEP) systems (Transbond Plus and Beauty Ortho Bond) and one etch and rinse system (Transbond XT) were used to bond brackets to 126 human premolars that were then stored in artificial saliva for 24 hours or 2 years and thermocycled in distilled water before SBS testing with a universal testing machine. The adhesive remnant index (ARI) scores were calculated. Data were compared by two-way analysis of variance and chi-square analysis. Enamel/adhesive interfaces were examined by scanning electron microscopy.

There was no significant difference in the mean SBS for the bonding materials among the three conditions. ARI scores showed that Transbond XT and Beauty Ortho Bond had less adhesive remaining on the teeth after ageing compared with storage for 24 hours. Specimens bonded with Beauty Ortho Bond showed leakage between the resin adhesive and enamel after ageing. Both SEP systems produced adequate SBS even after 2 years or 6000 times thermocycling. Thermocycling is an appropriate technique for determining the durability of orthodontic bracket bonding materials.
