tomas® Anchorage System

The complete anchorage system


tomas® (temporary orthodontic micro anchorage system) is a new concept for temporary skeletal anchorage in orthodontic treatment, e.g. for active tooth movement or passive stabilization. Its special design, as well as the complete product range and our comprehensive service make tomas® the premium modern system. tomas® is the first complete product range using sterile miniscrews.

 

  • enables simpler, more effective orthodontic treatment*
  • can replace headgear treatment*
  • designed to conserve teeth, avoiding extractions
  • only partial banding required*
  • optimized use of time and materials
  • well tolerated by the patient
  • pin not visible during treatment

    * Depending on the initial situation and type of treatment

Indications

Active tooth movement

  • Distalization of molars in the mandible and maxilla
  • Mesialization of individual teeth or entire groups of teeth
  • “En-masse” retraction • Class II sliding mechanics
  • Asymmetric Class II
  • Space closure in a Class I occlusion
  • Asymmetric occlusal plane

Passive stabilization

  • Appliances for correcting a Class II, e.g. Herbst hinge or Sabbagh Universal Spring (SUS2)
  • Preventing protrusion of incisors
  • Lingual technique
  • Anchorage of dentitions with a reduced number of teeth (oligodontia)
  • Appliances for correcting a Class II, e.g. Herbst hinge or Sabbagh Universal Spring (SUS2)

Preprosthetic treatment

  • Uprighting molars, particularly in the mandible
  • Mesialization/ distalizatio
  • Space closure
  • Intrusion
  • Alignment of wisdom teeth
