Initial arch wires for tooth alignment during orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances.
Optional Fields
Initial arch wires are the first arch wires to be inserted into the fixed appliance at the beginning of orthodontic treatment and are used mainly for the alignment of teeth by correcting crowding and rotations. With a number of different types of orthodontic arch wires available for initial tooth alignment, it is important to understand which wire is most efficient, as well as which wires cause the least amount of root resorption and pain during the initial aligning stage of treatment. This is an update of the review 'Initial arch wires for alignment of crooked teeth with ¿xed orthodontic braces' first published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2010, Issue 4.
