Begg technique

The Begg technique was named after its inventor Percy Raymond Begg. It describes a special method of teeth straightening with brackets and wire.

With this teeth straightening technique, not all parts of the teeth are moved at the same time. First, it is necessary to move the crowns into the desired position, and only afterwards the roots are moved. Although the crowns can be moved relatively quickly, the entire treatment is very time-consuming and has never prevailed over the Edgewise technique.
