Aim: To evaluate and compare adhesive remnant removal post debonding of brackets bonded using two different Orthodontic adhesive and enamel color change after removal of adhesive remnant post debonding with a tungsten carbide bur with naked eye and under loupe magnification (3.5 X -420).

Method: Forty extracted premolars were divided into 2 groups according to the adhesive used for the bonding (Group I Enlight and Group II Grengloo adhesive). Both the groups further divided into two subgroups by two different debonding techniques (necked eye and loupe magnification (3.5 X -420). Enamel color was evaluated spectrophotometrically before bonding (T1) and after debonding and polishing (T2). The color parameters were measured for both the adhesive and adhesive removal techniques, and the corresponding color differences (ΔE) between the interval groups were calculated. Results obtained were subjected to Wilcoxon signed rank and Mann Whitney U test to compare color change statistically.

Results: Study revealed that the Grengloo groups showed significantly greater change in ΔL (4.31 ± 1.32 in 2A and 2.85 ± 1.92 in 2B) than the Enlight group. Δa and Δb did not show a significant difference in both the groups. Highest ΔE value was observed in Grengloo adhesive.

Conclusion: Both the adhesive removed with loupe magnification showed less enamel color change than adhesive removed with naked eye. Grengloo, the color changing adhesive showed greater color change after adhesive remnant removal than the conventional adhesive.
