Temporary Anchorage Devices or TAD's are a very useful way to help close space from a missing tooth. We used TAD treatment on one of my patients who was missing a tooth. We closed the space without putting braces on the front teeth. The TAD is the screw and a spring is attached to the TAD on one side and to the molar on the other side. He was looking at this TAD treatment or an implant. We offer this treatment in our District office (Riverton and South Jordan, UT.) This treatment might be just what you are looking for. I'm glad that we did treatment using the TAD.
