PURPOSE To evaluate the relationship between biocompatibility and degree of monomer conversion of composites used to bond brackets to enamel, porcelain, resin, or metal surfaces at different time intervals. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four male Wistar rats were used, divided into 4 groups (n = 6) as follows: group C (control, polyethylene), group TCC (Transbond Color Change), group QC (Quick-Cure), and group EB (Eagle Bond). These substances were inserted into subcutaneous tissue. The events… CONTINUE READING
