Abstract

Orthodontic brackets are routinely bonded with light-cured adhesives. Conventional halogen lights used in bonding have the disadvantage of a long curing time, and the available alternatives (laser and plasma lights) are expensive. Our aim was to investigate the minimum time necessary to bond brackets with a new, relatively low-priced, high-power halogen light.
