In orthodontic treatment, there is difficulty in finishing stage in teeth that need uprighting to obtain root parallelism. Horizontal uprighting spring is used to upright teeth (clockwise or counterclockwise) to avoid uptighting problems in the late finishing stage such as rebonding brackets and to overcome the lack of vertical slot in the bracket. Horizontal uprighting spring is fabricated in the 0.012-inch stainless steel wire. Moreover, the type of tooth movement and the moment/force ratio can be determined by the spring length and hooking point.
