Abstract
The re-emergence of self-ligating brackets was greeted with great fanfare and even hysteria. But is self-ligation proven to reduce treatment and chair-side times? To lessen pain and discomfort? To produce unique and stable arch development? These questions will be tackled in this evidence-informed overview of the merits and demerits of self-ligation in orthodontic practice.
