UNLABELLED Despite the advances in bonding materials, many clinicians today still prefer to place bands on molar teeth. Molar bonding procedures need improvement to be widely accepted clinically. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the shear bond strength when an additional adhesive layer was applied on the occlusal tooth/tube interface to(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare shear bond strength of different direct bonding techniques of orthodontic brackets to acrylic resin surfaces. METHODS The sample comprised 64 discs of chemically activated acrylic resin (CAAR) randomly divided into four groups: discs in group 1 were bonded by means of light-cured composite resin (conventional adhesive); discs in group(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the potential correlation between the severity of Class II division 1 malocclusion and the magnitude of mesiopalatal rotation of the maxillary first molars. Scanned images of 104 cast models were grouped according to the severity of Class II malocclusion as follows: Group 1, 1/4 Class II malocclusion; Group 2, 1/2 Class II(More)
This study evaluated the influence of relining fiber posts on the bond strength (BS) of resin cements in the root canal. Forty bovine teeth were divided in four groups (n = 10): G1 (ARC)-fiber post cemented with resin cement RelyX ARC; G2 (ARC+Z350)-relined fiber post cemented with RelyX ARC; G3 (U200)-fiber post cemented with self-adhesive cement RelyX(More)
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated in vitro the mechanical changes of 0.018" (0.45 mm) and 0.016 × 0.022" (0.40 × 0.55 mm) thermoactivated nickel-titanium archwires subjected to heat treatment on their distal ends. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten archwires in diameters 0.018" and 0.016 × 0.022" by different manufacturers Ormco, Morelli, Orthometric and Unitek were(More)
