Abstract

During orthodontic treatment it is crucial to prevent the unintentional movement of the anchorage unit
whilst causing movement of other teeth. Conventional methods of anchorage control came along with many
shortcomings. The introduction of skeletal anchorage in the form of temporary anchorage devices (TADs)
or miniscrews has greatly benefited orthodontists in finding a way of anchorage control with minimum
patient compliance and without a complicated clinical insertion and removal procedures. This review article
outlines about the types of TADs, parts, techniques of insertion and removal and its clinical applications in
orthodontics.

Keywords: Temporary anchorage devices, Miniscrew, Anchorage.
