BACKGROUND Based on contradictory findings concerning the use of lasers for enamel etching, the purpose of this study was to investigate the shear bond strength of teeth prepared for bonding with Er-YAG laser etching and compare them with phosphoric acid etching. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this in vitro study forty - eight premolars, extracted for(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the shear bond strength of an antimicrobial and fluoride-releasing self-etch primer (clearfil protect bond) and compare it with transbond plus self-etch primer and conventional acid etching and priming system. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-eight extracted human premolars were divided randomly to three groups.(More)
BACKGROUND The advantages of coated orthodontic wires such as esthetic and their effects on reduced friction, corrosion and allergic reaction and the significant consequences of plaque accumulation on oral health encouraged us to assess bacterial colonization on these wires. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 18 (9 upper and 9 lower) epoxy resin coated 16 ×(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study is to evaluate the effects of a fluoride-releasing composite resin bonding material on reducing enamel demineralization underneath and around orthodontic brackets and compare that with a conventional adhesive system. MATERIALS AND METHODS Buccal surfaces of 10 intact extracted premolar teeth were divided into two(More)
BACKGROUND Primary stability is an important factor for the clinical success of orthodontic mini-screws. The present study made an attempt to evaluate the effect of insertion angle changes on the maximum insertion and removal torque of orthodontic mini-screws. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this experimental study, 72 mini-screws (Dual Top Anchor System, Jeil,(More)
