Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy in Columbus, Ohio
Alternative to braces that reduces the time-frame a patient must wear braces.
Braces are never popular with kids. While they will surely appreciate having a straight, healthy smile down the road, most would prefer not to wear this traditional orthodontic treatment for straightening teeth.
Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics presents a new solution.
This periodontic treatment allows the time-frame that a patient must wear braces to be accelerated up to 2-3 times faster. Only specially trained periodontists are able to perform this relatively new technique.
Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics – sometimes referred to as “Wilckodontics” – is a technique that involves inducing the bones that surround the teeth into a process called rapid acceleratory phenomenon (RAP). This phase allows the teeth to move faster, making realignment easier and quicker.
Because patients only have to wear their braces 2-3 times as long as traditional orthodontic braces, children can opt to receive the procedure during the summer. By the time the next school year rolls around they are ready with a brand new smile.
