CHAPTER 11: Bonding Difficult Areas

CHAPTER 12: Bond Troubleshooting

CHAPTER 13: Rebonding A Bracket


When bonding difficult areas such as blocked out maxillary laterals, high maxillary canines, and all second and third molars, there are five factors to evaluate before preparation of the teeth. These include the best method of isolation, visibility, access, bracket size, and occlusion.


When troubleshooting for bonding problems, it is useful to use a spreadsheet program included in the Orthodontic Bonding Course, Bracket Failure Charting, to determine the amount of bond failures and possible causes through recurring trends. Such trends might be all the adhesive remaining on the bracket with none on the tooth, and possible causes of this problem.


Different methods of rebonding a bracket are also covered such as with a microetcher and without one.


This course was written with the help of 3M Unitek, Ormco, Reliance Orthodontics, American Orthodontics, GAC Orthodontics, and several university orthodontic faculty, researchers, and practitioners. Dr. Rebecca Poling was the Editor of this collaboration.
