Tip edge brackets have evolved from the edgewise brackets with the removal of the diagonally opposite corners to incorporate the features of the Begg’s philosophy. Consequently, with the increase in the versatility of the brackets, additional auxillaries were required during the finishing stage of the orthodontic treatment. With different malocclusions having different requirements, it strains the limit for which the brackets are designed. Thus, it comes to the versatility of orthodontist skills to device techniques to use the full potential of the brackets while achieving the treatment objectives in the most efficient way. In the present case report, we have enumerated the versatility of ligation techniques which can be used to suit the needs of the case and achieve the correction of the malocclusion in the most efficient way.

Keywords: Tip edge brackets, Ligation technique, First and Second Order control, Preadjusted Edgewise Brackets.
