Have you been told you need jaw surgery? Then you owe it to yourself to consult with Dr. Tisseront first to see if you should consider Wilckodontics® instead.
If you’ve been told your jaw alignment is too far off and you may need jaw surgery in addition to braces, this information is just for you! Using Wilckodontics, Dr. Tisseront can move your teeth further than with braces alone and can give you the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve. Wilckodontics can often replace jaw surgery! Wilckodontics is much less invasive, much less risky and a lot more affordable than jaw surgery.
Wilckodontics will move your teeth about twice as fast as braces alone. Dr. Tisseront is a pioneer in the use of Harmony® Lingual Braces coupled with Wilckodontics and is now a sought-after lecturer on the topic nationwide.
How does Wilckodontics work?
Wilckodontics, also known as Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO)™, begins with a minimally invasive surgical procedure, usually done under general anesthesia, to remove a small portion of your aveolar bone’s external surface. This is the bone that contains your tooth sockets. For a short period of time, the bone’s mineral content will be decreased, allowing your braces to quickly move your teeth into their desired positions. Your aveolar bone will heal quickly and actually become stronger than it was before the procedure.
Is Wilckodontics right for me?
AOO can be done on people of any age as long as all your permanent teeth are present and you have a healthy bone structure.
To learn more about Wilckodontics and to find out if you’re a candidate for AOO, please contact our officeon 703-773-1200. We look forward to answering any questions you may have and helping you get the beautiful, straight smile you deserve.
Is Wilckodontics safe?
Quite simply – yes! The process used to demineralate bone has been used for the past 100 years in the orthopedic field and has recently been modified to help straighten teeth.
Of course, undergoing any kind of surgery no matter how non-invasive has risks, so be sure to discuss these risks with your doctor.
