    The 3M™ Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device System (TADs) offers fixed anchorage for efficient space closure, open bite correction and other orthodontic treatment.

    The Unitek TAD is a versatile temporary anchorage device with both the doctor and the patient in mind. It has multifaceted uses ranging from traditional needs of anchorage for space closure to skeletal malocclusions of patients unable or unwilling to undergo surgical treatment. The uniqueness of this system is its simplicity: a one head design, with one size diameter and three different lengths. This system does not require injections, incision, flaps or a pilot hole. The system is designed to be innovative yet easy to use. It allows you to be self-sufficient and empowers you to be creative, to efficiently deliver the results you require and your patients expect. The self-tapping, thread forming design allows an installation procedure that can be done in one appointment and can be loaded with an attachment immediately. Most uses do not require a pilot hole or stronger anesthetic than a topical application, so there are very few installation steps. Choose from the Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device (TAD) Straight Driver, Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device (TAD) Contra Angle Driver to install the implant using the hand instrument that is most convenient for the implant's location and angle.
