Self-ligation is an increasingly popular fixed appliance modality. Recent research has strengthened our understanding of the differences between passive self-ligation and conventional elastomeric ligation. The core advantages of passive self-ligation are recognised and the evidence for some less certain advantages will be reviewed and updated. The lecture will be comprehensively illustrated with clinical cases. Multi-force/multi-memory material archwires will be discussed and how these might improve treatment efficiency. Anterior open bite, innovative elastic wear patterns and efficient use of treatment visit intervals will also be discussed.
