The Mousetrap

William F. Hohlt/Robyn Silberstein

Pages: 257260
PMID: 19885430

This paper demonstrates an unorthodox method to quickly erupt palatally impacted canines based on sound biomechanical principles. The unwinding of a stainless steel round archwire produces the required occlusobuccal force. Due to its snap-back release, it looks like a trap, which is why it was dubbed mousetrap.
