Anchorage control is one of the most challenging tasks in orthodontic treatment. Many different types of appliance are used to control anchorage, but an excellent outcome may be difficult to achieve owing to either poor mechanics or inadequate patient compliance. Recently, temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs) have become popular in orthodontics. Some orthodontic movements that are now possible using TSADs were previously considered almost impossible with traditional orthodontic appliances.
Several different types of TSAD are currently available, and in choosing between them orthodontists are obliged to rely on the information provided by manufacturers, which is often not based on scientific evidence. This book therefore presents the various design characteristics of TSADs and provides up-to-date scientific evidence to assist orthodontists in selecting the best TSADs for their patients.

Ki Beom Kim gained his D.D.S. and M.S.D. from Dankook University, South Korea and subsequently was awarded a PhD for work on orofacial pain at the same university. In 2005 he joined the Orthodontic Residency Program at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn., and subsequently became Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthodontics at Saint Louis University. In 2011 he was appointed Associate Professor, Clinic Director, and Interim Program Director in the Department of Orthodontics at Nova Southeastern University, and he is currently Associate Professor at the Center for Advanced Dental Education, Saint Louis University. Dr. Kim is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and the American Board of Orofacial Pain and a member of various professional bodies in the United States and South Korea. He publishes regularly in peer-reviewed journals and has given many scientific presentations at international meetings.
