Friction in orthodontics has been blamed for many orthodontic-related problems in the literature. Much research as well as research and development by numerous companies have attempted to minimize friction in orthodontics. The aim of the present study was to critically review friction in orthodontics and present frictionless mechanics as well as differentiate between segmented arch mechanics (frictionless technique) as compared to sectional arch mechanics. Comparison of the two techniques will be presented and cases treated by either technique are presented and critically reviewed regarding treatment outcome and anchorage preservation/loss.
