6 to 9 months of Braces! See some of our results!
Who can benefit from Wilckodontics (Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics - AOO)?
- Both can enjoy the benefits of rapid orthodontic treatment.
- In most cases total treatment time in braces is only 6 to 9 months!
- In certain situations extractions and jaw surgery can be .
- Exceptional, ideal treatment results are obtained.
There are numerous benefits to AOO in addition to the very quick treatment time — including less root shortening, less "white spots" (decalcification), and less relapse after treatment is completed.
Imagine having to wear braces for 2 or 3 years! AOO is a "short-cut" that only corrects limited problems. Results are comparable, if not better, than with conventional orthodontics.
What is Wilckodontics (Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics - AOO)?
Years of research has culminated in the development of an advanced procedure by which teeth can be moved approximately 4 times faster than ever before possible with conventional orthodontics. As a result, the treatment time for most orthodontic cases can be reduced to 6 to 9 months. This method is a combination of time-tested and proven techniques from the fields of Orthodontics and Periodontics and is called the Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics™ (AOO™) procedure.
AOO harnesses the power of bone physiology by changing how your teeth and surrounding bone respond to braces. By stimulating the bone and gum tissues, your teeth can be made to move through the bone very rapidly and safely. When the braces are removed, the tooth movement is completed and the bone around the roots of the teeth will rebuild itself, even stronger than before.
Dr. Miller has treated numerous cases with AOO — more than almost any orthodontist in Orange County.
How does it work?
The first step is having the braces placed on all of your teeth by Dr. Miller. The following day, the AOO procedure is done in an office setting under IV sedation. The procedure involves stippling and scoring of the cortical bone around the teeth that are to be moved, in addition to bone grafting. This creates a temporary 'softening' of the new bone around teeth and allows the orthodontist to move the teeth into ideal positions in a rapid, safe and stable manner. Because the teeth move so fast, you will visit your orthodontist every 2 weeks to adjust your braces. When treatment is completed in 6 to 9 months, retainers are used to keep your smile looking beautiful for years to come.
