Ligation of archwire into bracket by conventional method when the incisors are lingually or palatally placed is cumbersome, time consuming and is even worse when there is vertical discrepancy between the slots of adjacent brackets. In this article, we suggested a new method of ligating the blocked-out incisors. This method can also be used effectively to ligate the lingually tipped tooth due to bond failure during retraction phase.
