Self-ligation orthodontic appliance utilization has primarily been advanced by clinical reports. Manufacturers’ claims evolved from these anecdotal assessments and both have challenged long-held conventional orthodontic convictions. What is the status of currently available evidence to support these claims? With this discussion, we will look at research reports from the past decade, reviewing the progression and findings of research and clinical evaluations to current published reports. Specific topics relative to claims and reported benefits from oral hygiene, patient comfort, treatment efficiency, friction, arch width changes, and others will be presented in a concise format.   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
