What is Wilckodontics® and the AOOTM Procedure?
A relatively new development in the fields of Periodontics & Implantology and Orthodontics development of a procedure by which teeth can be moved approximately 4 times faster than is possible with conventional orthodontics. Treatment time for most orthodontic cases can be reduced to 3 to 8 months. This new patented method is a combination of time-tested and proven techniques from the fields of orthodontics and periodontics and is called the Accelerated Osteogenic OrthodonticsTM (AOOTM) procedure.
When incorporating the procedure, patients who would have declined conventional orthodontics strictly due to the length of treatment now have a viable alternative. This group of patients has tended to include adolescents who do not want to wear braces for 1 1/2 to 3 years while in high school and adults whose social or professional responsibilities would preclude their wearing braces for a long period of time. The AOOTM procedure is feasible for most patients, regardless of age, as long as their permanent teeth are present.
Dr. Daniel Barabas is one of the only periodontal practitioners in North Jersey to be certified in the procedure, and is pleased to offer it to his patients.
