TADs – Supporting Tooth Movements That Are Otherwise Impossible!

Award-Winning Orthodontist For Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) In Jefferson Valley & Purchase, NY

 

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs)Dolphin TAD

Temporary Anchorage Devices, or TADs, are small titanium anchors used in certain orthodontic cases to help achieve tooth movements that in some cases would be otherwise  impossible, such as moving molar teeth back into the bone (intrusion). TADs are also used in addition to braces or Invisalign  and as an alternative to headgear.

How Are TADs Placed?

The placing of a TAD is quick, and may be over before you know it. While your doctor is placing the TAD, you may feel slight pressure; however, within a day, you will no longer be able to feel the TAD. If you do feel any discomfort from having your TADs placed, Tylenol® is recommended to help relieve your pain. If you continue to experience discomfort days after your treatment, please contact us as soon as possible. Your TAD is removed once your treatment is complete, or when it is no longer needed to help straighten your teeth. Removal of a TAD is a comfortable procedure that takes just a few minutes.

How Can I Keep My TADs Clean?

Pink On Brown 10A TAD can be cleaned the same way you clean your braces, by brushing your teeth at least three times a day. When your TAD is placed, we will also provide you with an antimicrobial mouthwash that you will need to use twice a day.

If you have questions about TADs, please contact our orthodontics office. We will be able to answer any of your questions, and provide you with detailed information about your orthodontic treatment.
