Temporary Anchorage Devices (TAD) are used to provide anchorage needs for a sort period of time in fixed orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic mini screw implants are ideal TAD’s as they do not undergo osseointegration and is very easy to use. The titanium alloy NeoAnchor Plus™ system appears to be the easiest to use and most biocompatible.

Dr. Ravi Kumar, the course director, has been practicing fixed orthodontics for the past 10 years. He is the Founder President of Indian Society Of Orthodontics For General Practitioners and is a keen researcher in Dentistry with a patent for his research granted by the Govt. Of India. Dr.Ravi Kumar has also published in several scientific Journals and has authored a textbook for the undergraduate dental student. He has also developed a short course interdisciplinary treatment method, using orthodontics, prosthodontics and endodontics, ideally suited for adult patients, called the Realistic Treatment Philosophy (RTP) and is presently engaged in popularizing this.


This course is intended for dentists who want to incorporate Orthodontic Mini Screw Implants (TAD) into their orthodontic practice and also as part of advanced orthodontic continuing education programmes. The course is presented as a seminar and workshop.
