Current study was carried for evaluating the shear bond strengths of 3 clinical micro-filled adhesives. The experiments were performed on extracted premolars for orthodontic purpose. The sample size was selected by randomized sampling technique. Sample size was 90 which were divided into three groups. The extracted maxillary first premolars were selected according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. The three adhesives selected for the study were applied to the bracket base according to manufacturer instructions. A Universal Test Machine has been utilized to record the bond shear intensity. The existing remnant adhesive on the teeth has been stereo-microscopically observed and is measured utilizing the Adhesive Remnant Index (ARI).
