Piezosurgery Assisted Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics: A Review

Author(s): Madhumita Choudhari*, Pavan Bajaj, Chitrika Subhadarsanee and Surekha Godbole


The need for orthodontic treatment has surged in recent years, particularly among young patients. However, the prolonged treatment time is the most common source of discomfort among orthodontic patients. The duration of fixed orthodontic treatment can range from two to three years, which raises the risk of consequences like as external root resorption, periodontal disorders, and patient cooperation. Wilckodontics, also known as PAOO (Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics), is a cutting-edge interdisciplinary strategy, in which orthodontic movement is enhanced by alveolar corticotomy to increase the rate of tooth movement. This is made possible by stimulating and invigorating the innate potential of living bone. This method has been reported to reinforce tooth movement and allows conventional orthodontic tooth movement (OTM)to speed up. It increases the envelope of movement two to three fold in addition to alveolar augmentation in patients having orthodontic treatment because their teeth are limited to nonflexible alveolar bone. This methodology increases alveolar volume as a substitute for bicuspid extraction. This article reviews the therapeutic advents, fundamentals of its use and examines the key indications, contraindications and its newer modifications including the utilization of piezoelectric methodologies.
