Types of Accelerated Orthodontics

MiniScrew

orthodontic-treatment21

This method embeds mini screws onto periodontal bone in order to shorten the time required for the initial alignment and the closure of tooth extraction space. It can shorten orthodontic procedure by 5~6 months by preventing unwanted movement of the teeth. Also, you don’t feel their existence during the treatment once mini screws are embedded inside the periodontal bone.

Corticotomy

Alveolar bone that surrounds teeth is composed of 2 different layers; spongy bone on the inside and cortical bone on the outside. Corticotomy removes the part of cortical bone in order to shorten the time for teeth movement since its thick and solid bone composition hinders the movement. Corticotomy is especially effective for correcting protruding teeth and malocclusion. Accelerated orthodontic treatment using corticotomy usually takes approximately one year to complete.

In order to reposition protruding teeth and periodontal bone backward, osteotomy is performed on the bone segment where a tooth is extracted. Anterior segmental osteotomy is a great option for those with protruding mouth since it involves in repositioning periodontal bone as well as the teeth.
