Maintaining torque with sliding mechanics in maxillary anterior teeth especially in presence of large extraction spaces has become a major concern among orthodontist. Loss of torque occurs owing to play between bracket system and arch wires. Thus, for torque control various arch wire twisting and torquing axillaries have been introduced. Not only do these techniques cause certain discomfort to patients but also extends patient chair time because of various chair side wire bending involved. Thus, a bidimensional technique in bracket system will be beneficial in controlling incisor torque simultaneously it will also assist in loss of anchorage in posterior teeth as it facilitates free sliding of arch wire through the bracket slot thus reducing friction. The aim of this article is to equip an overview of bidimensional technique in orthodontics.
Keywords: Bimetric system.
