Fluoride Treatment Prior to Orthodontic Bracket Placement. If you are providing a prophylaxis immediately prior to placement of orthodontic brackets, we suggest not utilizing fluoride at that appointment. It can weaken the bond strength of the composite leading to brackets dislodging easier. We always supply the patient with their first bottle of acidulated fluoride rinse at their bonding and ask them to use it nightly throughout treatment.
