Temporary anchorage devices (TADS) are occasionally used for a short time during orthodontic treatment. TADS are small titanium screws that orthodontists use to help reposition teeth. TADS are usually placed by the oral and facial surgeon in their office. When the TADS are no longer needed, they are removed and the site is usually fully healed in a couple of days.
