Temporary Anchorage Device (TAD) use in the treatment of anterior open bite by Padraig Dennehy, DMD

Temporary Anchorage Device (TAD) use in the treatment of anterior open bite

06/30/2015

While orthognathic surgery is sometimes the only option to treat certain skeletal malocclusions, having another tool in the arsenal is a welcome option for patients and clinicians alike. Recently, the minimally invasive placement of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) has allowed orthodontists to treat some of these patients without orthognathic surgery through intrusion of the posterior maxillary molars. The TAD can be loaded immediately as it gains its anchorage through mechanical gripping of bone rather than through osseointegration. Dr. Padraig Dennehy presents a case in which TADs are used to treat an anterior open bite.

They offer a reasonably affordable option for denture-wearing patients to improve their quality of chewing and quality of life. An often-overlooked use of Locator attachments is the stabilization of removable partial dentures. Dr. John A. Hodges explains how Locators can improve retention and esthetics, and ultimately result in more patient referrals and happier patients.
