Panavia is a modified phosphate ester of dimethacrylate that purportedly forms a strong bond to tooth struc ture and to metals. The ability of this adhesive lo bond orthodontic brackets to enamel was compared to the bond strengths of a no-mix bracket adhesive and a paste/paste autopolymerizing composite resin. Panavia did not form a bond as strong as that achieved by the bracket adhesive but nas stronger than the composite resin.
