Abstract: In this study, Panavia (a phosphonated Bis-GMA resin which is known to develop very high bond strengths with resin-bonded bridges) is compared to a conventional no-mix orthodontic Bis-GMA bracket adhesive. Results showed that there was no statistically significant difference in the shear bond strengths between the two resins when used as adhesives for bonding orthodontic brackets. Coupled with the fact that Panavia requires an anaerobic environment for complete polymerization, its routine use as a bracket adhesive in direct bonding of orthodontic brackets is not indicated.
