The Advantages of Wilckodontics®: Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics
By Kellyn Hodges on March 02, 2018
When people think about straightening their teeth, they tend to think only of orthodontics, yet Wilckodontics® could be the solution they've been looking for. Wilckodontics® is a major step forward in orthodontic care. Rather than just relying on the applied tension of brackets and wires, Wilckodontics® uses Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO). Oral surgery is performed to help reshape and remold the jawbone. Orthodontic care is then performed to help improve the alignment of the teeth and structures of the mouth.
This combination of oral surgery and orthodontics leads to a number of advantages over just using traditional orthodontics alone. The team at our Philadelphia, PA dental practice would like to cover the benefits of Wilckodontics® in brief. This should help you weigh your options if you would like to have a straighter and healthier smile.
Faster Than Traditional Orthodontics
Thanks to AOO, Wilckodontics® treatment is much faster than traditional braces. For many patients who get braces, treatment can last anywhere from 12 months to 24 months. With Wilckodontics®, patients tend to achieve final results within 6 months to 9 months. This means the entire orthodontic process is significantly expedited.
Able to Address Complicated Problems
Orthodontic care can achieve great results, but it can take time. Additionally, some problems are too serious for orthodontics alone to address. Thankfully, Wilckodontics® is able to handle even complicated cases of malocclusion. The oral surgery can do the heavy lifting that traditional orthodontics alone cannot address.
Carefully Planned Oral Surgery
In order to achieve the best possible results through Wilckodontics®, the oral surgery is carefully planned using advanced diagnostic and imaging technology. This means greater safety for patients as they experience the many benefits of Wilckodontics®.
Ideal for Patients of All Ages
AOO was originally only performed on pre-teens with significant issues affecting dental alignment. Today, patients of all ages can experience the many benefits of Wilckodontics®. Adults in particular will appreciate how fast the process works, which allows them to return to “normal” but with a great smile in under a year.
Excellent Results from Wilckodontics®
The results of Wilckodontics® can be quite dramatic. Patients will note an improvement in dental alignment and the overall look of their smile, for one. Additionally, patients will experience much better health and a general improvement in a sense of wellness. After Wilckodontics® is done, your smile will look so good that no one will release that you have undergone extensive dental work.
