n Evidence Based Summaries in Dentistry - Resin-modified glass-ionomer cement vs. composite resin for orthodontic bracket bonding




Modern-day orthodontic brackets are cemented to labial or lingual enamel tooth surfaces acting as a medium for delivery of forces applied by the arch wire and auxiliaries on the teeth. The factors implicated in the successful transfer of orthodontic forces include the surface preparation of the bonded enamel surface, the type of cement used and the shape / material / surface finish of the bracket. The ideal cement used for orthodontic bracket bonding should exhibit enough retention to resist displacement during normal oral function.
