The objective of this study was to compare the fluoride release of 3 orthodontic adhesives using disks and bracketed teeth with different storage protocols. The adhesives used were a resin-modified glass ionomer (RMGI) (Fuji Ortho LC; GC America, Aslip, Ill), a polyacid-modified composite resin (PMCR)(Assure; Reliance Orthodontic Products, Itasca, Ill), and a composite control, Transbond XT (3M Unitek, Monrovia, Calif).
