Eliades, Theodore (2019). Bracket slot size selection: after all a matter of taste? European Journal of Orthodontics, 41(3):223-224.

Abstract

The publication of the three-paper series on the effects of two slot sizes on treatment parameters in this issue, targets a topic, which has attracted a lot of discussion based primarily on anecdotal evidence. The conclusive evidence contribute to the lack of variation of treatment variables with slot size selection, clarifies one of the traditional beliefs on this issue; several others still hold strong however. This commentary has the objective of highlighting some points, which could be taken into consideration in interpreting the results of this three-part trial.
