The utilisation of orthodontic force, particulate bone grafting, and corticotomy are all components of the clinical technique known as Wilckodontics, sometimes known as periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO). Teeth can be induced to migrate quickly through bone by activating and using the natural capacities of live bone. The bone that surrounds the tooth roots rebuilds itself once the tooth has moved to its new position. The Wilckodontics procedure was developed by Drs. Thomas and William Wilcko, both orthodontists, and is protected by patent under the term Wilckodontics. Not only for the orthodontist and periodontist, but also for the patient in particular, this technique may be a win-win treatment.
