Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) and Invisalign: a combination that can be used to meet aesthetic expectations in the orthodontic treatment of adult patients
Eliseo, Andrea / Fiorillo, Gianluigi
The control of anchorage is increasingly relevant as orthodontic treatment in adult patients, particularly using aesthetic aligners, becomes more common. The application of miniscrews as anchorage has allowed the resolution of complex clinical cases in a short period of time, eliminating some of the complications that present during standard orthodontic treatment, while preserving the patient's aesthetics. This article describes various clinical cases performed through the use of aligners and Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs). The association of aligners and TADs is shown in different combinations. With the advent of the miniscrew, it is possible to gain control of reactive forces without recourse to the traditional methods of anchorage, to solve complex orthodontic cases through the association of miniscrews and aesthetic aligners.
