At Hiller Orthodontics, we are proud to introduce Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) as a part of our advanced orthodontic solutions. TADs are a revolutionary technology designed to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of orthodontic treatment.

What are TADs?

Temporary anchorage devices, or TADs, are small, biocompatible titanium screws that are temporarily placed in the jawbone to serve as a fixed point from which teeth can be moved. They are used in specific orthodontic cases to provide additional anchorage — something that was more challenging with traditional braces alone.

The TADs Treatment Process

After a comprehensive evaluation, if TADs are right for your case, your dentist or oral surgenon will strategicly place them in your mouth in locations determined by Dr. Hiller. This is done under local anesthesia, ensuring a comfortable experience. The TADs then work in conjunction with your braces or aligners, providing the necessary support to shift your teeth into the ideal position.

Benefits of Using TADs in Orthodontics

  • Enhanced Precision: TADs offer more control in moving teeth to the desired position.
  • Reduced Treatment Time: They can potentially decrease the overall time you need to wear braces or aligners.
  • Minimally Invasive: The placement of TADs is a quick, minimally invasive procedure.
  • Versatile Applications: Useful in treating complex cases that were previously difficult or impossible to correct with braces alone.
