New Orthodontic Procedure Shortens Treatment Time
Wearing braces can be a nuisance. Many people decline orthodontic treatment because of time and commitment. The Accelerated Osteogenic OrthodonticsTM procedure has solved this problem. Many orthodontic cases can now be completed in 3 to 8 months. This is 3 to 4 times faster than conventional orthodontics. Social obligations should no longer be an overwhelming obstacle. With the AOOTM procedure, less time in treatment translates to less disruption in your personal and work schedule. Since the time to complete the AOOTM care is compressed, it can easily be scheduled around weddings, school breaks, and other social issues that we all face. But the benefits of a shortened treatment are complemented by the quality of a perfect smile.
How the AOOTM Procedure Yields Very Short Treatment Times
It is this process of accelerated bone remodeling that sets the Accelerated Osteogenic OrthodonticsTM procedure apart from conventional orthodontics. This softened supporting bone permits the teeth to move into their new position much more quickly. Routine braces and specialized WilckodonticsTM appliances are still required to move the teeth. Once in position, the teeth are simply held in place while the supporting bone hardens around the teeth. Complete healing of newly remodeled bone occurs in approximately 8 months. The AOOTM procedure provides the patient with a beautiful, long lasting smile, in the shortest time possible.
About the Periodontal Procedure
Most procedures are done simply with local anesthesia. Many patients call this process “Novocain”. A safe sedation can also be prescribed if the patient or doctor feels it is necessary. This sedation will relax the patient, making the time pass quickly. An antibiotic saturated, bone-grafting material is placed under the gums through a few small incisions made by the Periodontist. The graft is placed over the areas where the supporting bone needs to be softened. This creates the ability to perform easy teeth movement. After straightening the teeth, the grafting materials will convert into the patient’s own supporting bone. The newly formed supporting bone not only helps to hold the straightened teeth, it also supports the lips. This is an added benefit, preventing the sunken face appearance that an accompany aging. The end results is a beautiful, prominent smile for years to come.
What You Might Expect Afterwards
Most patients report little to no discomfort from the periodontal procedure. This is due to the fact that you AOOTM procedure doctor is a highly trained professional. Even though discomfort is minimal, you can expect minor swelling and possibly light bruising.
Both of these finding normally resolve themselves over the first week or two. We have found that the procedure probably will not impact an average daily routine after the first day or two. Most patients are back to school or work the very next day. However, if medications are necessary, they can be prescribed.
Because the supporting bone is softened, most of our patients do not report discomfort, which can accompany wire adjustments in conventional orthodontic care. We find our AOOTM procedure patients have a much-improved orthodontic experience.
