Mudasir Khan, Nazia Lone, Ifzah

Introduction: Enamel fracture and cracks is a major concern during debonding. Therefore, it is important to evaluate an appropriate debonding process for removing brackets used in orthodontic practice. Method: Patients in the age range of 13 to 25 years were selected. straight cutting plier, bracket removing plier and ultrasonic tip were tested for debonding. Results: The bracket removing plier produced the most consistent separation at the bracket-adhesive interface, leaving the enamel surface intact. Conclusion: Debonding with band removing pliers reduces the risk of enamel cracks; therefore, this method is safer than other methods used for removing brackets.
Key words: Debonding, tooth brackets, enamel fracture.
