Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Treatment
Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics is often used from the outset of orthodontic treatment in order to dramatically reduce treatment times for a comprehensive orthodontic case. In addition to this, it can be used in cases where specific tooth movement has become difficult in a localized area and additional help is needed. The patient discomfort from the procedure is normally tolerated well and healing is typically not difficult or prolonged. A combined periodontic-orthodontic approach can help treatment continue to progress in difficult cases.
