Evaluation of a phosphonate BIS-GMA resin as a racket adhesi
Rux / Cooley / Hicks
Panavia is a modified phosphate ester of dimethacrylate that purportedly forms a strong bond to tooth structure and to metals. The ability of this adhesive to bond orthodontic brackets to enamel was compared to the bond strengths of a no-mix bracket adhesive and a paste/paste autopolymerizing composite resin. Panavia did not form a bond as strong as that achieved by the bracket adhesive but was stronger than the composite resin.
