We will soon offer Wilckodontics® treatment to our patients. Wilckodontics is also known as Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO)™. It is a surgical technique that is designed to spectacularly accelerate tooth movement - for those who wish to have their braces done in a very short period of time and are willing to accept invasive surgical procedure.
The following are from Drs. Thomas Wilcko (periodontist) and William Wilcko (orthodontist), the inventors of Wilckodontics®:
"The Wilckodontics® system is now being offered to patients on five continents. The Wilckodontics® system is predicated on sound bone physiology and verified by university research and human histology. Most orthodontic cases can now be completed in one-third of the time, and with a statistically significant decrease in apical root resorption and increase in post-treatment stability. This can be achieved while still getting the same good orthodontic results obtained with traditional orthodontic treatment. Concomitant alveolar augmentation and connective tissue grafting also make it possible to complete cases with a more intact periodontium. The alveolar augmentation also provides additional osseous support for the teeth and lips and allows for a degree of alveolar reshaping, which can aid in improving profiles and other facial features. The Wilckodontics® system can decrease the need for extractions and aid in providing patients with a beautiful prominent smile. IT can also be used to decrease the need for certain orthognathic surgeries (skeletal Class III’s being a notable exception), and greatly facilitate pre-prosthetic treatment. Impacted permanent teeth can now be forcibly erupted very efficiently."
"Now the most frequently asked question by the orthodontic patient is not 'how much will it cost?', but 'how long will it take?'. We have become an impatient society. Since 1998 surveys have consistently shown time has surpassed money in being our most precious and limited commodity. Additionally, it is no secret that a greater emphasis is being placed on improving one’s appearance. Everyone wants 'beautiful teeth.' The Wilckodontics® system simultaneously addresses these issues."
