Adhesion promoters, their effect on the bond strength of metal brackets.


There are occasions where it is desired to increase the bond strengths of no-mix adhesives. Noncompliant patients and hypocalcified and fluorosed tooth enamel require higher bond strengths than usually obtained. It was the purpose of this investigation to study the effects of adhesion promoters to increase bond strengths. In vitro shear bond strengths that… (More)
