TADS (temporary anchorage devices) are titanium-alloy mini screws that are temporarily fixed to the bone to enhance orthodontic treatment.
TADS allow orthodontists to overcome anchorage limitations and perform difficult tooth movements more predictable.
TADS can also improve orthodontic treatment results for patients with missing teeth.
Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) is performed to correct functional problems caused by misalignment of the jaws and/or teeth. Orthognathic surgery in combination with orthodontics corrects major skeletal and dental irregularities.
Corrective jaw surgery often improves chewing, speaking, breathing as well as facial appearance.
