Are bleaching and desensitizing agents contraindication for patients seeking orthodontic treatment?
ORTHODONTICS: The Art and Practice of Dentofacial Enhancement, 05/03/2012Ray S et al.
The use of 10% carbamide peroxide prior to bonding orthodontic metallic brackets does not significantly alter shear bond strength. Application of desensitizer agent alone or in combination with bleaching agent significantly lowers the shear bond strength of orthodontic brackets. Application of desensitizer agent alone or in combination with bleaching agent does not lower the shear bond strength below the recommended value for orthodontic bonding procedure. As a result, their use is not a contraindication before orthodontic fixed mechanotherapy.
