Temporary Anchorage Devices
TADs or Temporary Anchorage Devices serve as anchors for moving specific teeth in a controlled and predictable way. These are tiny special screws placed into bone. TADs are made of sterile medical grade titanium alloy. These devices often reduce or eliminate the need for surgery, headgear, and other auxiliary appliances. They allow treatment of certain cases that were nearly impossible to treat before this technique was refined.
