  • Abstract

    The key to a successful orthodontic therapy depends not only on manual skills and knowledge about treatment steps but also on knowledge and choice of materials used. One of the major components of fixed orthodontic therapy is the choice of wires. Orthodontic wires are defined as devices consisting of a wire conforming to the alveolar or dental arch, used as an anchorage in correcting irregularities in the position of the teeth. The history of these materials is as old as that of fixed orthodontic treatments and they present different features. With proper general knowledge, doctors can differentiate between wires and use the sufficient wire sequence suitable for each patient. This can increase the quality of treatment. Therefore, the aim of the present review is to assess the pain perception and patient discomfort between various dimensional nickel-titanium wires as well as the sequence of leveling wire selection according to the treatment plan.
