Patient wanted to fix his crooked teeth and he didn't want to be in Braces for long. We used a technique commonly referred to as PAOO (periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics). In this technique the gum is retracted and the bone underneath is scored to get faster movement, better final results and actual movement and increased width of the arch without major surgery. It is the standard of care in tough demanding cases.
