Wire bows in the slot (slot) locks can hold the wire or rubber ligature and then talk about conventional or “classical” locks.

In these brackets there mucosal irritant “streak” or rubber ligatures that hold deposits of food and it is difficult to properly clean than arch wire in the slot reserved clip or “door” that opens and closes. Due to its mechanical properties, these braces reduce the number of office visits and shorten the overall duration of therapy. In addition to these basic divisions of the classical and self-ligating brackets, there is of course the division of metal and aesthetic brackets and the lingual to be bonded to the inner “lingual” tooth surface and are therefore completely invisible.
