* In-Ovation brackets are opened by pushing in an occlusal direction on the tail of the clip behind the bracket. An important point is to avoid getting composite resin near this tail during bracket placement. Such excess adhesive can hinder or prevent clip opening. This problem is more difficult and more important to avoid in the lower arch, where the tail is not visible from the operator’s position.
* Time and Speed brackets are opened with a probe or other fairly sharp instrument, such as a Mitchells trimmer using the hole in the clip. Speed brackets can also be opened in the same way as In-Ovation.
* Damon2 brackets can be opened with ordinary pliers. Specific Damon pliers, which resemble modified distal end cutters, are slightly easier to use. Both these types of plier work better if there is a slight downward rotation to the opening movement.
* Very specific and extremely effective pliers for Damon2 brackets are manufactured by Plydentco and called Kasso D2 pliers. These pliers are personally recommended for all first-time users since they make all slides very easy to open. Importantly, no downward rotation is required when using these pliers.
