Temporary anchorage devices have become a mainstay of contemporary clinical practice offering guaranteed control of anchorage for both routine and complex tooth movements. This course will outline some of the more common TADs in use today and show placement from first principles and discuss the differences when selecting for conventional fixed orthodontic appliances and aligners. Anatomy of placement sites and advantages and disadvantages of these sites will be discussed. Simple direct and indirect mechanics will be shown to facilitate controlled tooth movements in the sagittal, transverse and vertical dimensions. The hands-on component of the course will require the participants to practice placing TADs in different sites on a human cadaver.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the history, evolution, design, placement, and clinical use of TADs.
  • Understanding of how to incorporate TADs into treatment planning and patient care.
  • Understand the difference in mechanics required when utilizing direct versus indirect anchorag. 
  • Practice the clinical skills to select, place, and utilize TADS in orthodontic treatment.
