Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate in vitro the effect of water storage on the tensile bond strength of orthodontic brackets bonded with Vitremer® and Fuji ll LC® resinreinforced glass-ionomer cements. Seventy-two extracted human premolars were randomly divided into 6 groups and the bonding strengths of the resin-reinforced glass-ionomer cements were compared to control groups bonded with Concise® composite resin at 24 hours and 9 months. The brackets were bonded on prepared teeth and a tensile load was applied to dislodge the brackets held in a special device from Lloyd 1000R testing machine. The effects of duration of water exposure, type of bonding material and interaction between long-term water exposure and type of bonding material on the bonding strength were described using the Weibull regression model. The mean tensile bond strength of resin-reinforced glassionomers after 24 hours water storage was significantly lower than the mean of the control samples. The results of this study showed no effect of water exposure on the tensile bond strength of brackets bonded with Vitremer® glass-ionomer cement. The mean bonding strength of brackets bonded with Fuji II LC® without enamel pre-conditioning significantly increased after 9-months water storage as compared to Fuji samples exposed to water for 24 hours. The results of this investigation allow to conclude: 1. Long-term water storage had not decreased the bond strength of resinreinforced glass-ionomers applied as orthodontic adhesives, 2. Weibull regression model is an adequate and flexible tool to evaluate the bonding properties of dental materials.
