VectorTAS was developed by a team of orthodontists with the idea that all miniscrew systems are not created equal. Although there are many TADs marketed for orthodontic anchorage, VectorTAS is the only complete system with a full array of orthodontic-specific miniscrews, TAD-specific attachments and instruments designed to make temporary anchorage easy, intuitive, and effective.
From end to end, every aspect of the VectorTAS miniscrew has been optimized to deliver maximum strength, stability, and clinical excellence.
Each VectorTAS miniscrew is sized and equipped with a specific thread design based on the soft-tissue depth and density of bone in its designated placement area.
Thread-forming design creates a more intimate purchase with surrounding bone, which is ideal in areas of thinner bone.
Thread-cutting design is ideal for more dense bone where cutting is required in order to minimize hoop stress.
The 6mm and 8mm miniscrews have a smaller diameter and smaller collar for placement between roots in thin cortical bone with attached gingiva.
The larger 10mm and 12mm miniscrews are designed to be stronger for placement in denser bone with thicker soft tissue and no concern for root impingement.
VectorTAS includes an assortment of TAD-specific auxiliaries to maximize the vectors and force levels used in skeletal anchorage, providing you with more controlled movement and better force management.
