Getting high canines or lingual teeth into position is always a pain for us and for patients but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’ll simply use some open coiled spring to make space for the tooth and then attach a large lumen eyelet to the tooth and then run a small diameter NiTi wire through the loop, there’s nothing to it. We did one today and I thought I’d share this simple trick.
These eyelets are cheap, don’t bind the wire and are comfortable for the patient. Notice that I left a good deal of flash around the eyelet base – this is because the base is flat not contoured. Enjoy.
