“Corwin Hegar 4” Wire Twisting Forceps: Tungsten Carbide Inserts”



HOW TO USE: Hold the ends of the metal ligature wire with the tip, lock the forceps, insert your index finger in the third ring of the forceps, and pull it back gently. Do not hold the other rings of the forceps while pulling them back.  The whole forceps will rotate, and the twists will be inserted in the wire. All the twists will take place in one go. Unlock the forceps and cut off the unwanted ends of the wire. We suggest that new users try it first on some orthodontic models to understand the trick. If you do not have the model, you can learn it by engaging the laceback wire on the knob of your drawer.


1) When inserting the metal ligatures on brackets, you spend a lot of time wire twisting. If you have these forceps, it is a matter of seconds.

2) When tying all anterior teeth with one crisscross wire (0.010” thin wire) to retract back as one segment (lace back technique), you waste a lot of time in wire twisting, but if you have these forceps, you can do it in seconds.

3) When you are making a fixed retainer, if you want to use the 0.010” wire to bond at the lingual surface of lower anterior teeth, use these forceps to twist two of these wires to give a shape of twistflex wire and use it as a fixed retainer.
