This study was conducted to examine the shear bond strengths of orthodontic brackets to ground enamel with two self-etching adhesives (Beauty Ortho Bond and Transbond XT) and two phosphoric acid-etching adhesives (Kurasper F and Orthomite Superbond). After the bonded specimens were stored in water at 37 degrees C for 24 hours, they were subjected to thermal cycling (TC) at 0 and 5000 cycles. Then, shear bond test was performed at a crosshead speed of 1 mm/min. Results indicated that the self-etching adhesives did not significantly differ in bond strength before and after TC (p>0.05), while the phosphoric acid-etching adhesives showed a significant reduction after TC (p
