The text describes the types of friction produced during sliding mechanics in Orthodontics as well as the results of in vitro studies which mainly focus on four aspects: (I) differences in friction between conventional and self-ligating brackets; (II) differences in activation and deactivation forces, as well as hysteresis among self-ligating brackets; (III) new model for measuring friction produced by wire delection; (IV) differences between in vitro studies and clinical trials.
