The Basics About TADs

Orthodontists use TADs, referred in full as temporary anchorage devices or mini implants, to facilitate quick and accurate movement of teeth during treatment. They are mini implants or screws which are placed in the jaw bone. TADs are usually very small and can be placed after numbing the area with a local anesthesia. This new technology has greatly reduced the time it takes to have orthodontic treatment and also enhanced efficiency of the procedure.
