Background Fixed appliances (braces) remain the most popular type of orthodontic appliance and are able to produce very precise tooth movement to achieve ideal results. The aim of the current study was to investigate the trends in using fixed orthodontic appliance components and preference among a sample of specialist orthodontists living in Baghdad city. Subjects and Methods A questionnaire was developed and distributed to 69 orthodontist specialists with postgraduate qualifications, PhD degree, Master degree, Diploma and Certificate issued by the Ministry of Health. Results The response rate was 58% and the majority of the participants used 0.022 of an inch bracket's slot size, while few of them especially those with more than 15 years' experience seem to prefer a 0.018 of an inch. Molar bands were preferred by 55% of the participants, mainly the female orthodontists, whereas there is a high correlation found between specialists using light cure adhesives (55%) and molar tubes. Although straight wire technique was claimed to be the dominated treatment approach, only 27% of those used heavy gauge stainless steel wires that is compatible with straight wire technique. Conclusion Most of the participant orthodontists used 0.022 of an inch preadjusted brackets bonded using standard etching technique. it is important to find that the concept of straight wire technique is not fully embraced. Raising the awareness of the orthodontist through continuing program development and training courses is required.
