Skeletal anchorage in orthodontics - the update!

Utilizing TAD´s in the anterior palate and the mental region eliminates the risk of root injury and takes the implants out of the path of tooth movement. The design of an interchangeable abutment system provides the orthodontist with a skeletal anchorage system that integrates easily into clinical practice and allows treatment of cases that were difficult or impossible to treat previously. Integration of recent advances in digital technology such as virtual planning of TAD installation, insertion guides and CAD-CAM design and 3D printing of orthodontic appliances broadens the options significantly.
