Tandem Breaker Switches

When is it appropriate to use a tandem switch, and what are concerns about using one in a home breaker panel? I have no open bays in my panel and wondering how the tandem works compared to a single pole switch?

On the inside of the panels door, will list the manuf and model of CB's that are approved for use with that panel. Some panel allow for tandem CB's. At no time may the number of breakers exceed 42 (tandem and double pole = count of 2 each).
