Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) represent a revolutionary advancement in the field of orthodontics. As small, biocompatible screws (or mini-implants) strategically placed into the jawbone, TADs provide strong and stable anchorage points for orthodontic appliances. They offer orthodontists greater control in guiding tooth movement while helping to minimize unwanted tooth movement and space loss.
TADs are particularly beneficial in complex cases where conventional methods might be insufficient to achieve desired results. In addition to facilitating more predictable outcomes, they can help reduce treatment duration and the need for more invasive procedures.
