The objective was to determine which bracket adhesive removal method was the most effective. Four different techniques were investigated: adhesive removing pliers, 12-fluted carbide, white stone, and Sof-Lex discs. Scanning electron microscopy was used for microanalysis and photographing. Sof-Lex discs was the best removal method, similar to the negative control.
