Orthodontic alignment of ectopically placed incisors or canines can be challenging and time consuming. A variety of techniques are used to align such palatally or lingually placed teeth including indirect ties with ligature wires, E-chains, piggy-back methods. This article presents two case reports to describe an effective technique using ‘slingshot’ method. It is a relatively simple and rapid method which is operator friendly and easily tolerated by the patients.
