Begg technique
an orthodontic technique employing a fixed multibanded appliance that incorporates a concept of differential light forces and uses a modified ribbon arch attachment and elastics (Begg appliance). Tipping the crowns of teeth to be moved, rather than moving them laterally, is used in the technique, thereby minimizing the use of orthodontic force.
