The recycling of orthodontic attachments is a controversial practice both in its technical application and in its legal aspects. The number of orthodontists using this method varies widely from country to country. Because laws applying to attachment recycling in France and throughout the European union have changed recently, we believe this is an appropriate time to review the legal ramifications of the procedure.
Key words: Orthodontic attachment / Recycling / Legislation / Ethics
