Customized and prefabricated arch forms are the two basic types of arch forms which determine the outcome of orthodontic treatment. With the introduction of preadjusted edgewise appliance, customized arch forms were rapidly replaced by prefabricated archwires. Although the former was more suitable for a particular patient, they were time-consuming in making and required a lot of chair-side time. The present paper describes a single jig which makes the fabrication of one such arch form (Bonwill Hawley) for any number of patients with different arch dimensions easy and less cumbersome.
