Open coil springs in orthodontic tooth movement are frequently used to create space between teeth. During placement, the spring exerts continuous force toward both the ends and in clinics sometimes becomes difficult and it is also time consuming procedure. To overcome this problem, we modified the tweezer design and made modified tweezer (m-tweezer) for greater convenience and safety during the ligation of open coil spring intraorally.
