TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices) are widely used during orthodontic treatment to treat more complicated malocclusions. TADs are titanium-alloy mini screws temporarily fixed to the bone to enhance orthodontic anchorage.
The placement of the TADs is minimally invasive and causes little to no discomfort. Using a strong anesthetic, the gums and surrounding areas where the TAD will be placed is numbed. The actual placement of the TAD is actually pretty quick. You may feel a little pressure but you will no longer feel your TAD after about a day.
The length of time the TADs will be required depends on each patient's individual case and condition. They may only be required for a few months or they may be required for the duration of treatment. Our orthodontist will discuss the treatment in detail with you if recommended.
