It also includes an accessory tube for placing arches or cantilevers and hooks for placing elastics. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: With this bracket design proposal it is possible to obtain an accessory that facilitates the inclusion of the second molar in the assembly of the orthodontic brace without the use of bands.
