Wilckodontics®

Are you postponing dental treatment because of the length of time you will have to wear braces? If so, Wilckodontics® might be the appropriate treatment for you. You can obtain the attractive, well aligned smile that you have always dreamed about faster than you ever thought possible by way of a combination of both traditional orthodontic methods as well as oral surgery. A total time for treatment can be accomplished in three to eight months. Wilckodontics® can accelerate the movement of your teeth by an amount that is up to four times faster than other forms of treatment.

Why Does Wilckodontics® Work So Quickly?

Another term for Wilckodontics®, is called Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO)™. Normally performed under general anesthesia in a hospital, this procedure starts with a minimally invasive surgical procedure which will enable the removal of a small part of your aveolar bone outside surface. The aveolar bone is the bone that contains you tooth sockets. The aveolar bone’s mineral content will be reduced over a short time period. Consequently, the aveolar bone’s mineral content will decline. The decline in the mineral content of your aveolar bone will enable braces to rapidly move the teeth into proper positioning. The healing of the aveolar bone is rapid. And, the Wickodontics® procedure will actually cause the aveolar bone to become stronger.

How Safe Is Wilckodontics®?

Wilckodontics® is indeed a very safe treatment option! The demineralization process of the aveolar bone has been routinely utilized in the orthopedic field of medicine for the past one hundred years. This process has been successfully modified relatively recently in order to straighten teeth. However, any kind of surgery regardless of how noninvasive the surgery might be is accompanied by risks. It is important that you discuss the various risks factors with Dr. J. Austin Rahaim, DMD MS.

Is Wilckodontics® Right Treatment For Me?

Wilckodontics® can be performed on individuals of any age provided that the individuals permanent teeth are available and are supported by a bone structure that is healthy.
