If you are reading this page, most likely, you are in braces, and your orthodontist has recommended this treatment. This surgical procedure allows you to expedite teeth movement. With bone grafting, it also helps prevent excess bone loss in higher-risk situations.
The lengthy orthodontic treatment time, especially in adults, can be dramatically reduced.
At Inland Empire Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, we offer PAOO to ensure that each patient can straighten their teeth and restore a healthy bite without causing additional damage to their mouth.
What Is Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics?
PAOO is a surgical procedure performed at the start of orthodontic treatment. The surgical stimulation increases bone remodeling and induces a process known as the regional acceleratory phenomenon (RAP), which encourages rapid tooth movement.
How Is PAOO Performed?
The surgery involves making precision cuts with an ultrasonic Piezosurgery® handpiece around your teeth. Afterward, a donor bone graft with membrane is placed on top and sutured in place. This increases the boney housing of your teeth, thickens the tissue, and allows for a more stable and esthetic, long-term result.
After your PAOO procedure, you will experience a few days of discomfort and swelling
For the rest of your orthodontic treatment, you will require adjustments every 2 to 3 weeks instead of the standard 2 to 3 months. With PAOO, your orthodontic treatment can be dramatically reduced.
