Orthodontic Procedures – Anchorage Devices

This treatment gives the orthodontist the ability to use small temporary dental implants or plates as anchorage for re-align some teeth without putting unwanted force on other teeth. This allows non-surgical options for challenging orthodontic cases.
The uses of anchorage devices

  • Can eliminate the need for jaw surgery
  • Close open gaps between teeth
  • Eliminate the need for head gear
