Our office is certified to perform periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontic (PAOO) treatment, also known as Wilkodontics. Using PAOO, most child and adult orthodontic cases can be completed in 3-8 months, which is about a quarter of the time it takes to complete traditional orthodontic treatment.
The PAOO system requires a periodontal procedure in conjunction with orthodontic treatment to successfully be completed. The periodontal procedure is necessary to help align the teeth more rapidly. The bone surrounding the teeth is also grafted which creates a strong support system for the patient’s newly straightened teeth.
PAOO not only improves treatment for patients but may also be helpful in encouraging patients to accept treatment, who may have otherwise denied it because of time constraints.
