People are increasingly paying attention to their smile and occlusion. That led to the emergence of new adhesive materials, including domestic ones. The purpose of this study is to define the indicators of detachment of brackets from three companies during clinical observation within one year after their fixation using the domestic set “Compofix (ortho)”. The study included 30 patients who had brackets fixed on both jaws on 24 teeth (from the first molar of one segment to the first molar of the opposite segment). The patients were divided into three groups: Group I included 10 patients who were fixed with brackets from Equilibrium (Dentaurum, Germany). Group II included patients who were fixed with G&H Orthodontics brackets (G&H Wire Company, USA). Group III included patients with Hangzhou brackets (JET Medical Equipment Co., Ltd China, China). Fixation in all groups was performed according to one adhesive protocol using the “Compofix (ortho)” orthodontic kit (Vladmiva, Russian Federation). The indicators were distributed as follows: Group I (12.5%) Group II (5.83%) Group III (28.75%). The study showed that G&H Orthodontics brackets (G&H Wire Company, USA) showed the best fixation to tooth enamel. Hangzhou brackets (China) showed the worst indicators of fixation to tooth enamel. The domestic complex “Compofix (ortho)” showed positive clinical indicators of fixation.

Keywords: adhesion, Adhesive Remnant Index (ARI), bonding system, brackets.
