Temporary anchorage devices, or TADs, are designed to hold fast in bone and serve as an anchoring device to assist in complex orthodontic movements, such as pushing, pulling or lifting teeth to their desired position. There are very few complications with this device and the removal of the TAD is often easier than the placement, leaving little to no evidence that it was ever there. To learn more about temporary anchorage devices in Niceville and Miramar Beach, Florida, and to make an appointment with our skilled orthodontists, Dr. Casi B.
