  • Points to be evaluated:
  • Bite opened.
  • Edge to edge incisor contact.
  • All rotations, anterior and posterior properly overcorrected.
  • Molar relationship overcorrected.
  • Good, well supported intercuspal posterior occlusion.
  • All space closed.
  • Buccolingual relationship of posterior teeth properly established.
  • Anterior teeth sufficiently retracted to allow for some relapse.
  • Slight (about 15 degrees) ‘V’ bend distal to canines in the base archwire which will bow the incisal section of archwire gingivally.
  • Extent should be sufficient to bring the anterior section of archwire to the level of gingival margin of the central incisors when the archwire is seated in the molar tubes and premolar brackets.
