The Pre-adjusted Edgewise Appliance technique, on which modern orthodontic appliances are based, has identical brackets for all teeth, and tooth movement is accomplished by adding bends to rectangular arch wires , which are held in the bracket slot using metal ligatures done by the dentist. The high degree of control afforded by the edgewise bracket provides a sense of security. Each tooth is always under complete mesiodistal tip control. Teeth are restricted by the brackets, not only from tipping independently in undesired directions, but also from tipping in desired directions. Edgewise is traditionally regarded as a methodology of orthodontic practice. It is an orthodontic technique originally developed by Dr. Edward H. Angle, the 'Father of modern Orthodontics', in the early 1900's. The basic meaning of the Edgewise technique relates to the use of a rectangular bracket, which attaches to the tooth. A rectangular wire fits into the bracket to control the movement of the teeth. More recently, however, Edgewise orthodontics has also become a philosophy, that encompasses the overall management and treatment of orthodontic patients. The function of the appliance is optimum bracket widths that achieve excellent torque and rotational control, with adequate inter bracket space for free tipping, improved rotational control due to the base radius being machined into the part rather than formed after the slot is cut, streamlined bracket heights allow greater latitude in vertical bracket placement, to accommodate individual case requirements.
