Abstract

Introduction : Self-ligating brackets in orthodontics has been use over the last 30 years. These systems have been the topic of several studies with good evidence making it likely to evaluate their efficacy and efficiency compared to conventional brackets. In this systematic review, we evaluate the differences between treatment efficiency, changes in transverse dimension, rate of canine retraction, treatment time and pain or discomfort in orthodontics.
Methods : Electronic databases (Pubmed, Cochrane Library and ISI Web of Science) were investigated without language restriction. The related orthodontic journals and reference lists were proved for all eligible studies. Two article reviewers independently retrieved the data and evaluated the quality of the primary studies.
Results : A total of 132 articles were extracted in the initial search. However, only 23 articles met the inclusion criteria. Outcomes of treatment efficiency, changes in transverse dimension, rate of canine retraction, treatment time and pain or discomfort in orthodontics between two systems of bracket were clinically similar.
Conclusions : Based on existing evidence, self-ligating bracket could be proven no superior benefit than conventional bracket. No clinical approval can be made concerning the type of bracket systems.
