Orthodontic Bone Anchors – (Temporary Anchorage Devices & Orthodontic Miniplates)

When our orthodontist colleagues request our assistance in accomplishing the movement of teeth that are particularly difficult, it is our pleasure to perform the placement of surgical orthodontic bone anchors (OBA).

Temporary Anchorage Device(s) TAD, or orthodontic mini-plates are helpful when the orthodontist recommends additional intervention to correctly align teeth. Because banding or bracketing the teeth may not be enough to adequately accomplish the required orthodontic movement, patients are referred to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for the anchoring procedure.

These types of special orthodontic cases can be improved by the placement of orthodontic bone anchors, because the procedure enables your orthodontist to effectively move the teeth in a way that is difficult or impossible with traditional braces. A TAD or mini-plate can also help to speed up the treatment times that a patient needs to be in braces. To accomplish the procedure, small screws/implants or mini-plates are surgically placed in the jaw bone during an outpatient procedure with comfortable sedation.

Following an appropriate amount of healing time, patients are instructed to return to their orthodontist, where wires, elastic bands, or small orthodontic chains will be attached to their braces in order to facilitate the prescribed movement. The screws and plates can be used to stabilize orthodontic wires where there are missing teeth or for a movement that would otherwise require headgear. When the desired orthodontic movement has been achieved, the temporary anchors can be easily removed.

Orthodontic bone anchors are well-accepted by patients and orthodontists because they can enhance the success of the orthodontic treatment, making it possible to achieve faster and more precise results. In fact, the use of orthodontic anchors, combined with cutting edge imaging and surgical technology, has significantly changed and improved the quality of challenging orthodontic procedures.

  • Comfortable and easy to clean
