The strength of the bond between the bracket and the enamel surface depends on three factors, namely, the retention mechanism of the bracket base, the adhesive material or bonding resin, and the preparation of the tooth surface.

The aim of this study was to compare the effects of different enamel conditioning techniques for bracket bonding.
