Indication : most preferable in all 4 or 5 extraction cases.
Advantage : Single wire and minimum occlusal interference and no cross over wire in canine or premolar region which avoids reopening of extraction space and paves way for final settlement of occlusion
DURATION REQUIRED FROM LAB : 2 days
REQUIREMENT FOR LAB : Upper and lower( type 3) dental stone models without voidspouredfrom good alginate impression.
