Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics , referred to as wilckodontics, is a technique that involves inducing the bones that surround the teeth into a process called rapid acceleratory phenomenon, or RAP.

Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics, referred to as wilckodontics, is a technique that involves inducing the bones that surround the teeth into a process called rapid acceleratory phenomenon, or RAP. This phase allows your teeth to move quicker, making any realignment easier and faster.

Because this treatment can offer you a newly aligned smile two to three times quicker than traditional braces, your child can opt for this option during the summer months. Then, by the time the fall semester begins they are ready to show off their brand-new smile to their classmates. This procedure has become quite popular among adults as well. Some adults find it embarrassing to have to wear braces at an older age. Therefore, any procedure that could speed up this process is a popular option for these adults.

Implant Dentistry and Periodontics understands the benefits of the wilckodontics technique. We offer a very extensive range of periodontal and dental implant services that can benefit all patients of all ages. Our conscientious staff concentrates on providing the best service for your overall oral health.

This new treatment allows you to have straighter teeth considerably quicker. This is an alternative to braces that reduces the timeframe. Wilckodontics is yet another innovative treatment from modern dental technology.

Wilckodontics is an advanced orthodontic procedure that utilizes the underlying issues of the bone and tooth arches that cause the misalignment. Traditionally we would simply adjust these issues by forcing the orthopedic solutions on the teeth, pressuring them to adjust accordingly.

Orthopedic treatment solutions have only improved minimally. Brackets have been made smaller and clearer, stiff wires have been given some bend, and clear plastic retainer systems like Invisalign has been recently introduced as well. Studies have recently found positive results in adjusting the cortical plates that are above the teeth crowns.

When your teeth grow in, the cortical plates establish their foundations in your mouth. This is the bone tissue that lives directly above in the upper arch and below the teeth in the lower arch, underneath the gum tissue. These are often referred to as orthodontic walls. When we adjust these walls, we can straighten teeth much faster. The realignment of your teeth also stays in place for much longer as the plates are not working against the teeth.

The Wilckodontics Procedure

Implant Dentistry and Periodontics will use wilckodontics to accelerate your orthodontic procedure. It works by softening the existing bone, so we can move teeth faster with the help of braces. Your bone and gum tissue are stimulated to safely move your teeth into their desired position faster. We soften the bone surrounding the teeth using well-established periodontal techniques. The new softened bone increases movement towards the desired location determined by Implant Dentistry and Periodontics. Once the movement is completed, the bone regenerates to create a stable structural support.

The softened bone is critical to the quicker orthodontic treatment, but the grafting material used will also convert into strong bone. This also supports the straightened teeth and establishes a long-lasting, corrective solution for your teeth that were misaligned or crooked.

Implant Dentistry and Periodontics will begin your wilckodontics procedure by administering the appropriate level of dental sedation. The minimally invasive surgical procedure removes 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 diminished or decreased, allowing your braces to move your teeth quicker into their desired positions. Your alveolar bone will heal quickly and become stronger than it was before the procedure.

What the Wilckodontics Procedure can combine

  • Correcting an altered tooth eruption.
  • Hard tissue (bone) & soft tissue (gums) are grafted.
  • The placement of orthodontic anchors.
  • The placement of dental implants.
  • The extraction of teeth if necessary.
  • Any and all orthodontic braces.

This simple periodontic treatment allows the timeframe that you must wear corrective braces to be accelerated up to 50% faster. The trained professionals at Implant Dentistry and Periodontics can perform this relatively new technique as it is an advanced orthopedic treatment that if not administered correctly, could be damaging.
