PEREZ GARCIA, Lizandro Michel  and  REYTOR SAAVEDRA, Eduardo. Orthodontic brackets. Gac Méd Espirit [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.1, pp.110-120. ISSN 1608-8921.

Background: the system bound to the orthodontic bracket arch must be safe, strong, rapid and comfortable for the patient, easy to use and must provoke little friction. Objective: to argue about the management of fixed techniques with the use of brackets. Conclusions: brackets constitute a newfangled option in orthodontics, but in Cuba it has been rarely used. They are classified into passive and active. Damon system, Vision LP and Time are the mostly used among the passive ones and the Speed and In Ovation among the active ones. Four phases of treatment are described to use the technique of these orthodontic brackets and in spite of its high cost; it is more advantageous than the previous techniques.

Keywords : orthodontics; treatment; fixed appliances; orthodontic brackets.
