The Hybrid Orthodontic Treatment System (HOTS)
Ikegami, Tomio / Wong, Ricky Wing-Kit / Hägg, Urban / Lee, Wilson / Hibino, Kyoko
This paper describes the Hybrid Orthodontic Treatment System (HOTS), an innovative method used in first premolar extraction cases. It comprises the following three components: (1) a miniscrew, (2) dual-dimension wires, and (3) multiloop edgewise archwires. HOTS consists of four clearly defined treatment steps: (1) setup, (2) leveling, (3) separate but simultaneous anterior and canine teeth retraction, and (4) final adjustment. HOTS achieves a predictable treatment outcome with a shorter treatment time.
