Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAAO): An interdisciplinary approach for faster orthodontic therapy

Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics is a relatively new procedure designed to minimize the time taken for orthodontic treatment. The orthodontist avails of the aid of a periodontist to perform decortication of the bone and places bone graft for rapid orthodontic correction of malocclusion.

Procedure makes it a better alternative to orthognathic surgery in cases like mandibular skeletal Class-III malocclusion. It also offers better anchorage due to a difference in support around the anchored tooth and the tooth to be moved; furthermore, the treatment window of approximately 4 months provided due to this procedure provides a decrease time duration for orthodontic therapy.
