Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) placement is an advanced procedure performed by oral and maxillofacial surgery specialists to provide additional support and stability during orthodontic treatment. At Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, we offer expert TAD placement services to enhance orthodontic outcomes with precision and efficiency. Here’s what you need to know about TADs placement:

Understanding Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs)

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) are small, titanium screws or mini-implants temporarily inserted into the jawbone to serve as anchor points for orthodontic appliances. They provide stable anchorage to facilitate more controlled and efficient movement of teeth, especially in complex orthodontic cases.

TADs Placement Procedure

The TADs placement procedure typically involves the following steps:

  1. Consultation: Your oral and maxillofacial surgery specialist will evaluate your orthodontic needs and determine if TAD placement is appropriate for your treatment plan.
  2. Treatment Planning: Based on your specific orthodontic concerns, your specialist will create a customized treatment plan that includes the precise placement of TADs at strategic locations in your jawbone.
  3. Placement Procedure: During the procedure, local anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area. The TADs are then carefully inserted into the jawbone at predetermined sites identified in the treatment plan.
  4. Activation: After placement, your orthodontist will attach orthodontic appliances such as braces or wires to the TADs to begin moving teeth into their desired positions.

Benefits of TADs Placement

TADs placement offers several advantages for orthodontic patients, including:

  • Enhanced control and precision in tooth movement.
  • Reduced treatment time and fewer orthodontic adjustments.
  • Minimized reliance on patient compliance for anchorage.
  • Effective management of complex orthodontic cases.
