Wilckodontics And Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO)

Wilckodontics is a type of orthodontic treatment that aims to accelerate the movement of teeth and improve the alignment of the jaw. Dr. Wilcko developed it in the 1990s to reduce the time required for orthodontic treatment and improve the stability of the results.

Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO) is a specific Wilckodontics treatment involving orthodontics and oral surgery to achieve accelerated tooth movement. The AOO procedure aims to accelerate tooth movement and stimulate the growth of new bone in the jaws, which helps to support the teeth in their new positions.

The Benefits Of Wilckodontics

The most significant benefit of Wilckodontics in Great Neck, NY, is the substantial reduction in treatment time. Although you must wear braces with the treatment, you can expect results much faster with the AOO treatment.

Here are a few additional benefits of the procedure-

Improved alveolar bone strength

Long-term stability for the corrected teeth

Most patients can qualify for the treatment

Low risk, high success rate

Enhances the aesthetic appeal of your smile

At Great Neck Dental Associates, we are committed to providing you with the best dental procedures to help improve your smile. Whatever your needs, our team is always ready to help you get the smile you always wanted.

The Wilckodontics Procedure

Our dentist will thoroughly examine your oral health during your initial consultation, including your teeth, gums, bite, and bone structure. We will also take a few x-rays and run other diagnostic scans of your mouth to identify the underlying cause and to determine whether you are a good candidate for the AOO procedure.

If you are found to be a good candidate for the procedure, you should expect the following to happen during your subsequent appointment:

Our dentist will use an appropriate sedation technique to reduce pain and discomfort and calm you down before the procedure.

They will access your alveolar bone by pulling back your gum tissue

During the next step, the dentist will make a small incision in your alveolar bone and remove a small part of the bone surface. Doing so causes the bone to demineralize, making it softer and allowing the teeth to reach their normal position faster.

The bone gradually heals over the next three to eight weeks and becomes stronger than ever.

Once the procedure is complete, the area is sutured, and our dentist will fit traditional braces over your teeth.

The Wilckodontics procedure gives faster and more reliable results to straightening teeth than traditional braces or other orthodontic procedures alone.

Aftercare Following Wilckodontics

Following the Wilckodontics aftercare instructions provided by Great Neck Dental Associates for a quick recovery is essential. In addition to those instructions, here are a few additional steps to maximize the benefit and minimize post-procedural complications.

You can use over-the-counter pain meds to manage the pain and discomfort.

If you experience swelling, apply an ice pack over the area for fifteen to twenty minutes.

Stick to soft and easy-to-chew foods for at least one week after the procedure.

Rest, especially for the first two days, and avoid strenuous activities.

Follow a good dental hygiene routine to ensure no food or debris is stuck between the metal braces.
