Session details

During the last decades, there is an increase in the number of patients, mostly adults, who present complicated dental problems seeking for orthodontic treatment. These patients usually present complicated problems along with some specific particularities, such as their periodontal condition, the existence or need of prosthetic reconstructions, etc.). Thus, very often these patients present increased anchorage needs, which cannot be addressed when using the old-fashioned conventional anchorage modalities, such as transpalatal arches, etc.

In order to efficiently solve these problems, there is need to use other more efficient forms of anchorage, such as the skeletal anchorage. Orthodontic miniscrew implants or TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices) have been used very efficiently for anchorage reinforcement in orthodontics. However, not only suitable anchorage modalities, such as the orthodontic miniscrew implants (TADs), but, depending on the biomechanical factors and the specific conditions of the individual patient, orthodontic biomechanics should be carefully considered and utilized during treatment as well.

All these issues should be taken into serious consideration when dealing with the orthodontic management of these patients. This lecture will present and discuss several conditions highliting the proper use of orthodontic miniscrew implants (TADs) in the everyday clinical practice.
