The orthodontic temporary anchorage device (TAD) is a miniature device that is temporarily fixed to the bone to accomplish difficult tooth movement. In certain cases, TAD’s may reduce treatment time or provide an alternative to surgical correction or implants.

  • Dr. Ting is one of a few orthodontists in our community that uses TAD’s to accomplish tooth movement that would otherwise not be possible.
  • Dr. Ting is capable of accepting Invisalign cases that would otherwise not be candidates because he can incorporate the use of TAD’s with the aligners.
