Temporary Skeletal Anchors


This exciting technology allows us to:
  • Upright severely impacted molars into normal occlusion
  • Close spaces in some cases with missing teeth that would otherwise require expensive dental implant tooth replacements
  • Safely and comfortably erupt impacted canines
  • Correct occlusal plane cants
  • Solve difficult tooth eruption problems
  • Eliminate jaw surgery in some cases
Essentially, anchors can be placed in the jaws to allow orthodontic tooth movement previously impossible with conventional orthodontics. Anchors can be placed with minimal discomfort; often without needle anesthesia.
