What are temporary anchorage devices? (TAD’s) How effective a patient’s orthodontic treatment turns out to be is largely dependent upon the anchorage method employed. Previously, orthodontists used intraoral auxiliary appliances like braces and extraoral auxiliary appliances like headgear with the teeth to control anchorage. These posed many problems that interfered with ideal results being achieved.
