In the last decade of the preceding century, orthodontic practice witnessed the reporting of periodontal ligament distraction for rapid canine retraction1, the use of mini screws for anchorage 2-9, and the resurrection and refinement of corticotomy –facilitated orthodontics 10-15. These methods added aspects of strength to routine clinical practice. It has been hypothesized that, by “amalgamating” conventional fixed orthodontic treatment with the aforementioned techniques, it would be possible to produce a “layered” treatment regimen that maximizes the patients’ benefit. The advantages of the new techniques should theoretically cancel out the drawbacks of routine fixed treatment (long duration, enamel lesions, root resorption, anchorage problems). This article describes the evolution and clinical application of a new technique, The Amalgamated Technique
