AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of different methods of ligation in tie configurations on friction in dry and wet conditions. METHODS Four methods of ligations were used: regular round tie, figure eight, twist, and diagonal. Materials used were Alastik (3M Unitek), Power O module (ORMCO), O-ring ligatures (JES), stainless steel… CONTINUE READING
