This article presents modification of band contouring plier into arch wire cinching plier (P-Cincher), which is easy to modify and user-friendly. The conventional method for arch wire bending is by heating and bending of distal ends of the arch wire with the help of light wire plier or Weingart plier, this method of arch wire bending is time-consuming, and it may loosen bands or debonding of bondable buccal tube while cinching. This plier is designed to overcome disadvantages of conventional method, and it will definitely help in faster and effective cinching of arch wire.
