INTRODUCTION The purposes of this study were to assess the shear bond strength, the surface characteristics, and the adhesive remnant index scores of teeth prepared for bonding with erbium, chromium doped: yttrium-scandium-gallium-garnet (Er,Cr:YSGG) laser etching, and to compare laser etching with phosphoric-acid etching and a self-etching primer. METHODS Sixty-four premolars, extracted for orthodontic purposes, were randomly divided into 4 groups, and a different method was used to prepare… CONTINUE READING
