Dental Orthodontic Accessories Stainless Steel Ligature Wire
What is the use of ligature wire?
When your orthodontist straightens a tooth that may be twisted or turned, the archwire must remain securely in the slot of the bracket. A wire ligature is therefore often the preferred choice of ligature because it allows the orthodontist to keep the metal archwire securely tied into the bracket slot.
Steel Tie: A thin metal wire that is tied over the wire around one bracket, for a secure hold, and it takes the place of an O-ring. E-chain: The rubber colors that are connected in a line and are put around the brackets to help close spacing and hold the wire in place.
