Wire forming and utility pliers are orthodontic pliers made out of stainless steel, having mainly 3 components, 2 handles, one horizontal joint and 2 jaws that make the active part of the plier. According to their specific purpose, the active parts can be very thin or bulky,serrated or fine, to give the right indentation or shape to the orthodontic wire.
Utility pliers are used only for straightening, bending and giving a preshaped form to the othodintic wire to be used. Some of them have carbide tips for a better grip on the wire. The dimentions of the pliers range from medium to large.
