Abstract : By comparing the effects of five orthodontic adhesives in clinical applications and the effect of related nursing method on their performance, the authors found that the EB-type compound resin and the EM-type enamel adhesive are strongly affected by the nursing operation and temperature, with many factors affecting their setting. In addition, the support braces were found from clinical investigations to have a higher drop-out rate; therefore, the foregoing two adhesives proved to be ineffective in clinical applications. It is understood that photosetting adhesives are still in the research stage and have yet to be commercialized; thus, this kind of adhesive needs to be further studied. The performance index and clinical effects of the Beijing/Tianjing enamel adhesive and the CC-1 type orthodontic adhesive have been shown to be superior over those of the other three adhesives.
