What on earth is that??? - twin archwire

We have heard about double archwires, of course - but I've never seen brackets like these. Or should that be self-ligating brackets that have been supplemented with an additional archwire by way of a powerchain (just barely visible)? Looks fascinating, at any rate. Opinions?

Agreed, that does look interesting. Never seen anything like that before. I think your right though, does look like it's one of the self-ligitating type

Pic is definitely of self ligating brackets with a separate piece of archwire keeping the upper lateral incisor to lateral incisor together.

I've seen brackets that are designed to be able to have two archwires before, but they weren't self-ligating.

My brackets are Tip Edge style in the firts stage I had two wire in one slot one with loops and one without them; at the second stage I have two wires one in a internal slot and one in the normal one
