What is Wilckodontics?
Wilckodontics, also known as Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (AOO)™, begins with a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove a portion of  your aveolar bone's external surface. This is the bone that contains your tooth sockets. For a short amount of time the bone's mineral content is decreased, which allows your braces to move your teeth quickly. You aveolar bone will heal quickly and become stronger than it was before the procedure.

Is Wilckodontics Safe?
Of course! This process has been used for the past 100 years in the orthopedic field and has recently been modified to help with the straightening of your teeth. Of course any type of surgery, no matter how non invasive can have risks, so make sure to discuss these risks with Dr. Han.
