- Crimpable double tubes for segmental retraction

- When a T-loop is used in segmental mechanics, it is generally attached posteriorly to an auxiliary tube in the first molars and anteriorly to a crimpable cross tube or a Burstone canine bracket. This article illustrates the use of a crimpable tube with a 90-degree bend on the base wire to secure a T-loop in segmental retraction. Both of these approaches allow a T-loop to be reactivated in a simple manner without undesirable changes in the system of forces, which could happen if the T-loop is skewed posteriorly.
