Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics reduces treatment times in comprehensive orthodontic cases by Curtis K. Andrews DDS, MS

Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics reduces treatment times in comprehensive orthodontic cases

09/01/2015

Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics is often used from the outset of treatment to dramatically reduce treatment times for comprehensive ortho cases. Dr. Curtis K. Andrews presents a case showing how the decision to have a periodontist do a corticotomy surgery to accelerate tooth movement helped advance orthodontic treatment. In cases where specific tooth movement has become difficult in a localized area and additional help is needed, a combined periodontic-orthodontic approach can help treatment continue to progress.

The airway becomes impassable, and the sufferer is forced to emerge from sleep as a survival mechanism. These are the devastating effects of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). As many as one in five of your patients may be afflicted with this life-threatening disease. The dental profession has an opportunity to step in and save lives.
