Abstract

&ndsp;&ndsp;Wilckodontics, also known as Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (PAOO), is an advancing technology in the field of dentistry. It is a procedure which has made rapid orthodontic movement possible by stimulating and harnessing the innate poten- tial of living bone. It is a multidisciplinary treatment approach utilizing periodontal regenerative surgery to create rapid orthodontic movement. It reduces periodontal complications in patients undergoing orthodontic treatment as their teeth are confined to non-flexible alveolar bone. This clinical procedure has gained popularity as a treatment option in adults, which is otherwise time-consuming as mineralization and maturation of the upper and lower jaws are complete. This overview focuses on the historical background, indications, contraindications, surgical technique and modification in Wilckodontics.

Keywords: Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics; Rapid Orthodontic Movement; Periodontal Regenerative Surgery; Corticotomy; Wilckodontics; Alveolar Bone
