A Temporary Anchoring Device (TAD) is a miniature screw that is positioned in the mouth. It serves as an anchor for moving specific teeth. TADs are made of a sterile medical-grade titanium alloy. They can be used in the place of some “outside the mouth” appliances (e.g. Headgear), and allow for the treatment of bite problems that were nearly impossible (or required surgery) before this technique was refined. TADs also allow for treatment of some cases better and faster than ever before. TADs are truly revolutionizing orthodontic treatment.
