 The smell of pumpkin spice melts the air and vibrant leaves drift to the ground, signifying autumn’s arrival. As store shelves fill with Halloween candy, it won’t be long before families gather for the upcoming holiday season. As this time of year approaches, sweet treats and tempting foods tease us to dig in, but if you’re embarrassed by your smile, eating in front of others can evoke uncomforting emotions. These feelings can be brought on by missing teeth or misaligned teeth and often times, patients do not realize the amount of treatment options available for correcting these problems. At New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, our oral surgeon in New York, Dr. Mark Stein, offers several corrective solutions, including temporary anchorage devices, to assist you in achieving a rejuvenated, healthy smile.

According to Dentistry Today, over 5 million people lose teeth each year. This loss can be due to a variety of factors, including age, improper care, and trauma. Many patients however, do not realize how crucial it is to visit their oral surgeon after tooth loss in order to prevent further problems, including loss of bone density and shifting of teeth. When left untreated, the jaw may misalign and teeth may collapse inward, preventing further orthodontic treatments that may be necessary to correct your smile. Temporary anchorage devices in NY, allow for easy realignment of teeth when teeth shift out of their correct position. This minimally invasive approach affixes temporary small screws into the jaw or roof of the mouth to provide anchorage for orthodontic treatments such as dental bridges or dental implants in NYCOnce teeth are moved into their correct position, dental implants or dental bridges are easily affixed, giving you back your full smile!

During your teeth straightening treatments, TADs allow for extra oral force to help shift teeth into the desired position.
