Flash-free adhesives, as an alternative to the process of Flash cleanup, which used to be a major part of conventional adhesive applications, apart from being an additive step, also tend to leave uneven clumps with the need for extreme technical expertise.To establish the status of Flash-free adhesives as an alternative to conventional adhesive systems for Orthodontic brackets. A literature search was performed using PubMed, Google scholar, Science direct, Lilacs and Grey literature using MeSH terms- Flash-free adhesives, Orthodontic brackets, fixed appliances. Out of 91 articles, 30 full-text articles were assessed for eligibility, and then four were taken for systematic review. This review was then reported according to the PRISMA guidelines. While compared to conventional adhesives, Flash-free adhesives are more effective in treating orthodontic brackets because of a reduction in the accumulation of plaque control and demineralization. The study concludes that it reduces the extent of accumulation of plaque control by eliminating excess adhesive and reducing bracket failures. The use of flashfree adhesives is more effective in the treatment of orthodontic brackets.
