There is minimal or no discomfort when having a TAD inserted because the bone tissue does not have nerve endings. During your treatment, we typically use a local anesthesia to ensure that the procedure is comfortable and relaxing. In most cases, we can insert the TAD in only one appointment to our office.

TADs can speed along braces treatment and help avert the need for jaw surgery. TADs also offer an option to move just one or several teeth without the need for a full set of braces. Dr. E will monitor your TAD to determine how long it should remain in your mouth. To learn more about TADs and how a temporary anchorage device can help improve the success of your orthodontic treatment, we invite you to contact our office today.
