Force level of small diameter nickel-titanium orthodontic wires ligated with different methods

Background The aim of this study was to compare the deflection force in conventional and thermally activated nickel-titanium (NiTi) wires in passive (Damon Q) and active (Bioquick) self-ligating brackets (SLB) and in conventional brackets (CB) tied by two different methods: elastomeric ligature (EL) and metal ligature (ML). Methods Two wire diameters (0.014 and 0.016 in.) and 10...
