CORTICOTOMY-PERIODONTALLY ACCELERATED OSTEOGENIC ORTHODONTICS - A SURGICAL TECHNIQUE AND CASE REPORT
Corticotomy-assisted orthodontic treatment involves selective alveolar decortication in the form of decortication lines and dots performed around the teeth that are to be moved. It is done to induce a state of increased tissue turnover and a transient osteopenia, which is followed by a faster rate of orthodontic tooth movement.This technique has several advantages, including faster tooth movement, shorter treatment time, safer expansion of constricted arches, enhanced post-orthodontic treatment stability and extended envelope of tooth movement.This case report describes a surgical technique and case report involving periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics.
