INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to determine the bond strength of rebonded mechanically retentive ceramic brackets after treatment with 2 abrasive techniques. METHODS In addition to a group of new brackets, 3 groups were treated according to the following conditions of debonded ceramic bracket bases: sandblasting, sandblasting + silane, and silica coating + silane (15 in each group). Treated ceramic brackets were rebonded on premolars. The samples were stored in distilled deionized… CONTINUE READING
