Only for UAE participants. The event will take place at the CAPP Training Institute, Dubai, UAE.


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. 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 anteroposterior tooth movements. Anterior open bite case management will be discussed. Hands On course will require the participants to practice placing TADs in different sites as well as work through the steps of making a miniscrew retained orthodontic appliance.
