Objective: Orthodontic adhesives are known to release potentially harmful bio-chemicals such as Bisphenol A, a derivative from Bisphenol-A-Glycidyl-Methacrylate (Bis-GMA). The aim of this study was to evaluate the amount of Bis-GMA released after the use of orthodontic adhesives polymerizing chemically or with light. We also aimed to check whether a single rinse is effective on evacuating all the residual monomers.
