“Are self-ligating brackets worth the extra-money? An update meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials and split-mouth design studies.”
Self-ligating brackets have been a piece of our armamentarium in orthodontics since their introduction 70 years ago by a Brooklyn orthodontist, Jacob Stolzenberg.
To name a few historical milestones, the Speed™ bracket was put on the market as early as 1980, whereas the Damon SL™ represented a significant introduction in 1996. Self-ligating products have been proliferating since, and marketed aggressively by the different orthodontic distributors as being more efficient than traditional brackets.
The claims that you can find today on the distributors’ websites in favor of self-ligating products, are among others: reduced friction, better results, reduced treatment time, reduced number of appointments, improved patient comfort, wider arch development, reduced chair time.
As a result of these successful promotional campaigns, self-ligating brackets are now being used by 63% of US practitioners as reported by the last 2014 JCO survey.
The aim of this lecture is to verify these claims based on a meta-analysis strictly restricted to randomized controlled trials and split-mouth design studies comparing self-ligating and traditional brackets, published in the literature up to April 2015
