TADS / Temporary Anchorage Devices

When in need of extra anchorage for the movement of your teeth, your orthodontist might recommend that a small screw/anchorage device be placed.  These temporary anchorage devices (TADs) comprise mini screws, which facilitate the movement of hard to move teeth.  The location of these devices will be determined between your orthodontist and Dr. La Rosa. These TADs will be removed as soon as the teeth have been aligned.
