Segmental arch mechanics are always preferred mechanics of choice since a known force system is delivered to the teeth without loss of force to friction.

This article presents an innovative way to use the K-SIR arch wire for single canine retraction. 

Keyword: Segmental arch mechanics, Individual canine retraction, KSIR arch.
