This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
The aims of this review are to determine the effects of laceback ligatures for controlling the position of the:
anterior teeth (amount of flaring/proclination of incisors or canines or both) during orthodontic treatment compared with participants not having laceback ligatures placed as part of their orthodontic treatment and/or
posterior teeth (amount of mesial movement of molars or premolars or both).
