Expanding the limits of safe orthodontic movements and Enhancing Orthodontic Treatment.
This course will be focused on clinical application of so called Periodontally Accelerated Orthodontic Movement ( aka Corticotomy ) beyond the mere acceleration:
When corticotomy and guided bone regeneration procedures are added to orthodontic treatment we are looking at Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (PAOO ® ).
To consider corticotomy or PAOO ® as simply a means of accelerating orthodontic treatment is quite limitative.
Corticotomy wit Regenerative Procedure offers many clinical advantages :
Expand scope of orthodontics
Reduce Orthodontic treatment time
Improve range of movements
Modify differential anchorage between groups of teeth
Diminish risks of relapse.
Eliminates the need for dental extractions in many patients
Reduces risks of periodontal side effects of orthodontics treatment
Less incidence of marginal bone resorption
Expansion of alveolar basis and more bone support
Shorter treatment time, therefore less plaque accumulation on orthodontic armamentarium
Improved post-surgical outcomes
Less root resorption during active orthodontic movement due to decreased resistance of cortical bone
Change of periodontal biotype due to the addition of bone graft
Modify lower third of face
Minimally invasive surgery ( compared to Orthognatic or osteo-distraction, and appliable only when the skeletal discrerpancy is less than 2-3 mm)
Decreased postoperative discomfort
Ability to perform surgery in an office-setting
No requirement for hospitalization
and working toghether with Oral Maxillo-Facial Surgeons in orthognatic cases,
a rapid decompensation tool.
This surgical technique has evolved and there are now several variations including the flapless approach ( Piezocision ® ) and the single flap approach ( SFC single Flap Corticotomy).
Both are easily employed by clinicians and likely to be more readily accepted by patients. The ability to use these techniques will facilitate the choice of the most efficient and least invasive approach.
The appropriate multidisciplinary approach allows clinicians to plan surgical procedures in sequential and/ or segmental fashion according to the progress of the orthodontic treatment.
At this point surgery becomes secondary to the orthodontic treatment which therefore becomes orthodontically driven and as a result minimally invasive. ... See MoreSee Less
