Wilckodontics North Miami Beach, FL
What is Wilckodontics?
Over 4-years of research has culminated in the development of a new procedure by which teeth can be moved approximately four times faster than conventional orthodontics. As a result, the treatment time for most orthodontic cases can be reduced to 3-8 months. This new patented method is a combination of time-tested and proven techniques from the fields of orthodontics and periodontics and is called the Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOOTM) procedure.
How does Wilckodontics work?
The treatment begins with a minimally invasive surgical procedure, usually done under general anesthesia in order to remove a small portion of your alveolar bone’s external surface. This is the bone that contains your tooth sockets. For a short period of time, the bone’s mineral content will be decreased, allowing your braces to quickly move your teeth into desired positions. Your alveolar bone will heal quickly and actually become stronger than it was before the procedure.
Is Wilckodontics safe?
Simply – yes! The process used to demineralize bone has been used for the past 100 years in the orthopedic field and has recently been modified to help straighten teeth. As with any surgery and no matter how non-invasive it can be, all surgeries have their risk. Be sure to discuss these risks with your doctor.
