AIM OF THE STUDY: To compare the three fluoride releasing orthodontic bracket adhesives clinically in order to conclude whether one surpasses the other, in terms of fluoride release, bond failure rate and Adhesive Remnant Index (ARI) scores. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Comparision of the three fluoride releasing orthodontic bracket adhesives, Transbond PLUS Color Change, Reliance Light Bond and Orikam Neo Ortho was done in 15 patients. 5 patients were allocated in each group by random allocation sequence. Saliva samples were collected from each patient before bonding and 1 week, 1 month, 2 months and 3 months after bonding and were subjected to fluoride assessment. Bond failure rates were also evaluated and Adhesive Remnant Index was scored for the debonded teeth. RESULTS: From T1 to T4, the Fluoride release was significantly highest in the Light Bond group. The lowest percentage of debonding was seen in the Light Bond group, followed by the Neo Ortho group and the Transbond PLUS group. There was a significant difference in the distribution of ARI scores among the groups. The Light Bond group had significantly less grades of ARI scores (Scored only Score 0 and 1). CONCLUSION: Reliance Light Bond group had the highest salivary fluoride release, lowest percentage of debonding and the least ARI scores and can be used as a regular alternative to conventional orthodontic bracket adhesives. Even though, comparatively, the salivary fluoride release of Transbond PLUS and Orikam Neo Ortho is lesser, the above two adhesives can also be used clinically as an advantageous alternative.
