Bonded molar tubes: a survey of their use by specialist orthodontists
Journal of Orthodontics , 07/09/2012
Murray PG et al. – Specialist orthodontists preferred bonded molar tubes (BMTs) to bands on first permenent molars. Direct bonding was favoured using a 30–second etch, a light–cured primer and adhesive with specialized molar tube holders. BMTs were perceived to be more cost–effective than molar bands.
