Question:

which is better- Begg`s method or Straight line method ?

Answer:

In this country (USA) very few orthodontists use the Begg technique. When they do, they use the TP tip edge bracket, which is a modified edgewise bracket with a vertical slot for root up-righting.

The "straight line," as you call it, is standard edge-wise and there are various bracket prescriptions. Remember, you are selecting an orthodontist, not an appliance. That is the orthodontist's decision.
