Abstract Objective: To determine the reinforcement of bond strength of a self-etching system by applying a pretreatment agent. Materials and Methods: Sixty extracted human premolars were used in this study. The enamel surfaces were treated with four pretreatment agents?phosphoric acid, polyacrylic acid, citric acid, and ammonium hexafluorosilicate (SiF)?and were examined under a scanning electron microscope. Afterward, orthodontic brackets were bonded with a self-etching adhesive system (n ?=? 10 for each agent), and shear bond strength was measured through a debonding process. The adhesive remnant index (ARI) was also assessed. Results: Enamel surfaces treated with polyacrylic acid seemed almost the same as intact enamel. Treatment with SiF induced slight shallow depressions compared with the intact enamel. On the other hand, enamel surfaces treated with citric acid and phosphoric acid showed severe etching patterns. All pretreatments increased the bond strength, but SiF-treated specimens revealed the greatest strength (12.201 ? 1.048?MPa), followed by polyacrylic acid (12.030 ? 2.103?MPa). The control group with no pretreatment showed the least strength (9.078 ? 1.678?MPa). All pretreatments increased ARI score compared with the control group. Conclusions: Surface conditioning before bracket adhesion could reinforce the bond strength of the self-etching adhesive system, resulting in a more reliable bonding system.
