There is a lack of articles in the literature that provides a comprehensive review of the uses of different methods of ligation in orthodontic treatment. The aim of this article is to provide an illustrated review of their use with fixed appliances; moreover, it will provide practical tips for their appropriate use.

Clinical relevance: This article aims to provide a review, with detailed illustration, of the use of stainless steel ligatures in orthodontic treatment.
