In clinical orthodontics, anchorage control is a treatment key. Numerous anchorage devices have been proposed and used for more than a century. However, most of these devices have disadvantages, in the effectiveness depends on patient compliance and they cannot provide absolute anchorage. As skeletal anchorage approach, temporary anchorage devices (TADs) are fixed directly onto the bone and provide absolute anchorage for several kinds of tooth movement. Furthermore, even without patient compliance, TADs can provide stationary anchorages for various tooth movements and even make it possible to move the tooth in directions which have been impossible with traditional orthodontic mechanics. Clinical use of TADs in orthodontics is now expanded, and indications for TADs have been not limited. As the result, TADs are generally accepted by orthodontists and patients. Today I would like to show clinical use of TADs for vertical control in orthodontic cases with vertical discrepancies as well as horizontal control. Furthermore, I would like to introduce a new novel miniscrews developed as the next generation screw. I hope this presentation contributes to development of an integrated orthodontic treatment with TADs to patients with vertical and horizontal discrepancies.

Learning Objectives:

1. How to use TADs in Clinical Orthodontics
2. Indications of TADs
3. Why necessary to enhance inital stability of TADs
4. Development of new novel miniscrews
5. Case scenario from consultation to treatment planning

Who Should Attend?
1. General Practitioner
2. Specialists
