The Benefits of Stainless Steel Ligature Wire

Though elastic ligatures are a common way to secure arch wires to brackets, they are not the only way. Stainless steel ligatures offer more control than elastics, as their tightness is manually controlled upon installation, and they are also less likely to deform or prematurely degrade. They are particularly useful when attempting to bond arch wire to brackets from a distance, as they can reach
