Sponsor: 3M Unitek
Released: 11/17/11
View Full Description »
Tools: Hemostat/Mosquito pliers and ligature director with a small head Ligature material: Sections of four modules of powerchain (not too thick; can use Rocky Mountain or Ormco) When to use it: Use the reverse double overtie when you need maximum seating force on the wire. Technique: Ligature is placed around the hook and the behind the occlusal wing before placing the wire. In contrast to a normal double overtie, the free modules are oriented to the occlusal. To overtie, seat the wire in the slot with a ligature director, stretch the elastic with the hemostat/mosquito pliers over the wire and fix the first module under the hook, using the ligature director to direct the powerchain. To remove the reverse double overtie, use a short dental explorer to pull the ligature from under the hook and remove.

For maximum control, the wire needs to be guided close to the bracket body. Technique: Make a u-shape under the hook on both sides of the bracket body going under the wire. Take one side, go over the wire and under the hook and close it on the opposite side by twisting. Push the sides of the steel ligature as close to the bracket body as possible and tighten to maximize the seating force.
