Are you a working professional who does not have the time to undergo years of conventional orthodontics to get straight teeth? Is your teenaged child uninterested in wearing dental braces for social reasons? To many people, a person’s smile ranks first as their most important physical feature, higher than the condition of their eyes, hair, and body. Dr. Edward Segal understands how important a straight smile can be and that many don’t favor the idea of being in braces for a number of years. We offer advanced Wilckodontic® treatment, and together with your orthodontist and general dentist, can help straighten your teeth is as little as three months with this procedure.
Cutting-Edge Treatment for Safe, Fast Orthodontic Results
Wilckodontics, or Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO™), is one of today’s most advanced orthodontics system available to patients. Treatment begins with a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. Using specialized instruments, Dr. Segal creates small holes in the alveolar bone, the ridge of bone that contains the tooth sockets. In this temporary, “weakened” state, braces can move the teeth more freely and rapidly since there is less resistance from the now “soft” bone. Once the teeth are positioned in the correct place, the alveolar bone rebuilds itself and quickly heals the teeth in their new location. The newly positioned bone is stronger than before the procedure, and helps prolong the amount of time teeth remain straight after orthodontic treatment.
