Temporary Anchorage Devices

TADs are temporary screws or plates that are placed into the bone adjacent to the teeth. They provide a solid anchor point to move teeth. TADs enable a greater degree of tooth movement than is possible when using the other teeth as anchorage. They can also be employed to intrude maxillary molars and correct an open bite nonsurgically.
