As the markets get flooded by ever evolving self-ligation brackets, the clinician is likely to get carried away by marketing gimmicks and false promises. A simple yet extensive review of self-ligating brackets used by the authors is presented along with case reports. The purpose is not to be critical of individual products but present the wide variety of such brackets available today. The choice of the bracket system is based on multiple factors and quality of certain products just makes the life of the clinician as well as the patient more comfortable. The case reports emphasis that the end result is primarily due to the clinical acumen of the operator and every individual system requires a learning curve to be overcome.
