Ni-Ti open coil springs are often used to create space for alignment of malposed teeth. Predetermining the length of open coil spring required to open up the exact amount of space is rather difficult, and occasionally, the length of the open coil spring falls short to open up the entire space required. This article highlights the chairside intraoral method of reactivation of NiTi open coil spring with the use of crimpable hook without removing the base archwire.
