This clinical trial evaluated, over a 12-month period, the performance of brackets bonded to teeth etched and primed with Transbond Plus Self-Etching Primer (SEP) when compared with a conventional separate two-step etch and primer system. Thirty-nine randomly selected patients requiring fixed appliance therapy were entered into the study. Random allocation of each etching system, along with a 'split-mouth cross-quadrant' design was used. A total of 661 brackets were placed by two operators. The… CONTINUE READING
