Kevin G. Murphy, DDS, MS - "Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics: An Update"

Course Summary:    

"Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics: An Update"

There has been an increase in the amount of clinical research and commercial activity focusing on accelerating methods for tooth movement. While surgical and mechanical interventions affecting the alveolar housing and tooth movement have been described for over a hundred years, the demand to find the best method to increase tooth movement with the least possible disadvantages continues. The purpose of this pre­sentation is to outline the clinical techniques, discuss the historical perspectives and provide the proposed biologic basis for these techniques.

This presentation will focus on the clinical surgical procedures of Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics. Modifications of the surgical protocol which enhance the predictability the surgical outcomes, including the use of temporary anchorage devices, will be discussed. Understanding that patients frequently present with the need for both orthodontic and gingival augmentation procedures, the combination of gingival augmentation and PAOO procedures will also be demonstrated.
