Biomechanical mistakes in the use of TADs and the ways to solve them.
The use of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) for orthodontic anchorage control has become popular.
Reasons for the popularity of the TADs include their ease of placement, the lack of necessary patient
cooperation as the patient no need to wear extraoral anchorage appliances.
This new treatment approach is convenient and can provide better anchorage control, so in many cases,
we might get good treatment results.
However, if biomechanical factors are not considered during utilization of TADs, it may create
undesirable side effects, as TAD itself cannot provide an ideal force system.
A good understanding of biomechanical principles can minimize side effects and improve the efficiency
of TADs mechanotherapy.
