Skeletal Anchorage in Growing Children
The inclusion of TADs in orthodontic treatment has transformed the orthodontic approach to cases with missing teeth.
The application of TADs to lingual orthodontics poses some unique challenges. In addition to the biomechanical considerations for maximum efficiency, the aesthetics and comfort of the setup must also be carefully considered. The customized nature of lingual appliances makes preplanning the mechanics essential for maximum clinical efficiency.
This presentation will show some of the applications of TADs with the Incognito appliance wit
