Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs)

The most innovative advancement in orthodontic treatment, and one that we are excited about and committed to, is the use of Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) which allows the orthodontist to treat certain specific orthodontic problems in ways that provide a more predictable and stable outcome. It is particularly of value for adults who may have lost several teeth over the years but would like orthodontic correction and for patients of all ages with space or growth problems. It is high-tech, cutting-edge treatment that is of great advantage. Basically, it consists of small screws that are placed in the bone at strategic sites to provide a strong point of anchorage from which to apply orthodontic forces. Although it has limited application, it is an extremely valuable tool for use to provide the best treatment in difficult cases.
