    Introduction: Self-etch adhesives have become increasingly popular in orthodontics as the process of etching and priming is combined in one step, thus eliminating the steps of washing and drying that are necessary after conventional etching. With an increased use, the need to study the bracket failure rates with such systems in comparison with the conventional system is necessary. The primary aim of this review is to compare the bracket failure rates of self-etch adhesives with conventional two- step adhesives: The secondary objectives being the comparison of bracket failure rates among the upper and lower arches and also the bracket failure rates between fixed mechanotherapy in cases of extraction and non extraction. Methodology: Data sources: The search strategy for this literature review was carried out according to the standard Cochrane systematic review methodology for all randomized and controlled clinical trials. All volumes of the European Journal of Orthodontics, American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Angle Orthodontist, Seminars in Orthodontics, and other orthodontic journals were searched. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were applied when considering the studies to be included in this review. Data selection: Primary outcome measure was the rate of bracket failures when self-etch primers and conventional adhesive systems were used while the secondary outcome measures included the failure rates observed between the maxilla and the mandible. Results: Ten randomized controlled trials were selected as eligible studies, and only qualitative analyses were performed because of the diversity of the interventions and outcome measures. Eight studies showed no significant alterations in bracket failure rates when bonded with self-etch and conventional adhesives. One study showed a decreased rate of bracket failure when self-etch adhesives were used, while one study showed a significant increase in the rate of bracket failure when self-etch adhesives were used. Conclusion: There was no difference in the failure rates or survival time of brackets bonded with conventional adhesive systems and self-etch adhesive systems.
