ARE TADS NECESSARY FOR ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?



Orthodontic TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices) are small miniscrews that are inserted into the palate or jawbone. They are a point of leverage used to enable efficient orthodontic movements.


TADs have a wide range of applications. They can be used in cases with overbites, underbites, open bites, or cants, can assist in retrieval of impacted teeth, can facilitate palatal expansion, and can be used to close spacing from missing teeth or dental extractions

The TADs will be removed by your dental professional once they are no longer needed for your orthodontic treatment.
