Surgical Orthodontics

Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (PAOO), is a method by which traditional orthodontic (braces) treatment can be accelerated 2-3 times faster with the aid of a periodontist trained specifically in the technique.
Many of our patients choose to have this treatment completed near the end of the school year.
The method involves inducing the bone surrounding the teeth into a mode that allows for the teeth to be moved much faster than in traditional orthodontics. The bone surrounding the teeth enters this phase due to a process called the “Rapid Acceleratory Phenomenon”, or “RAP”.

For any questions or concerns regarding if this treatment is right for you, please contact our office to schedule you a consultation.
