Using an Coated Ligature Wire with Ceramic/Composite Braces provides best possible aesthetic result - while elastic transparent ligatures are suffer from fading and color lost (yellowish blend) due to interoral acids after just couple of weeks.
The Shorty Ligature twists are preferred by some operators since they may be placed and tightened with only one hand.
The short end tends to irritate the patient's lips and cheeks before cutting the pigtail, so fewer may be placed at one time.
The shorty twist wire is not quite as strong as the preformed .010 steel ligatures, so some dentists feel that a looser tie results.
Placement of ligatures in the bicuspid and molar areas is significantly easier with the shorty system.
