Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device System

Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device The Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device System offers fixed anchorage to assist the efficiency of your orthodontic treatment. Useful for space closure, tooth uprighting, open bite correction, molar distalization, or a number of other applications, the Unitek TAD is a versatile temporary anchorage device with both the doctor and the patient in mind.


Easy, Stable Installation

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. Does 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 or the 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. Other features important to installation:

  • The square neck resides close to the center of the implant, assisting stable insertion.

Versatile Application

The three different implant lengths -- 6, 8 and 10mm -- allow multiple applications in different areas of the mouth. The curved head offers a groove above the neck and two 0.030" holes for different attachment options. Other features important to application:

  • The optional Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device (TAD) O-Cap helps prevent tissue overgrowth, has an attachment groove, and can be soldered for customized attachment needs.
  • The Unitek™ Temporary Anchorage Device Constant Force Coil Springs provide easy attachment capability that locks into place once installed.
