Abstract

Temporary anchorage devices (TADs) have become a mainstay of contemporary clinical practice, offering guaranteed control of anchorage for both routine and complex tooth movements. We will discuss the anatomy of placement sites and the advantages and disadvantages of these sites. Additionally, we will demonstrate simple direct and indirect mechanics to facilitate controlled tooth movements in the sagittal, transverse, and vertical dimensions. The hands-on component of the course will require participants to practice placing TADs in the palate and work through the steps of creating a mini-screw-retained orthodontic appliance.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the history, evolution, design, placement, and clinical use of TADs.
  • Gain an understanding of how to incorporate TADs into treatment planning.
  • Practice clinical skills in selecting, placing, and utilizing TADs in orthodontic treatment.
