Many signs: Temporary implants (tads) are sometimes used to provide anchorage, to provide a stable construct to use to move teeth. Sometimes there are no alternatives. Sometimes other teeth, headgear, trans-palatal bars, lingual arches, and so many other orthodontic appliances can be used instead. Often, however, tads are the best alternative. Discuss this with your qualified orthodontic specialist.
