Wilckodontics® Wilckodontics® Procedures: Smile Straight Sooner
Wilckodontics procedures allow you to achieve the smile of your dreams faster than you ever thought possible. As you get older, the thought of wearing braces for years is understandably unappealing. To make matters worse, orthodontic treatment times are typically longer for adults than they are for children. But with Wilckodontics, you can dramatically reduce your total treatment time.
What is Wilckodontics?
Wilckodontics, or Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics™ (AOO), is a new procedure that speeds up orthodontia work. Extensive research into bone physiology allowed orthodontists to develop the procedure so that they could straighten smiles in a short period of time. The procedure combines orthodontic forces with alveolar techniques that have been used for years.
Traditional orthodontics take an average of 24 months from beginning to end. Wilckodontics procedures make it possible to achieve your perfect smile approximately four times faster! In three to eight months, you’ll be making up excuses to smile just to show off your newly straight smile.
Wilckodontics starts with a minimally invasive surgical procedure that removes part of your alveolar bone’s surface. By lessening the bone’s mineral content, your braces will be more effective at stimulating tooth movements. Shortly after the oral surgery, the alveolar bone will heal to be as healthy as ever. By then, your teeth will be perfectly situated in their new positions.
Who Can Benefit from Wilckodontics?
Individuals who’ve avoided conventional orthodontics because of treatment times are the perfect candidates for this procedure. However, anyone with permanent teeth can take advantage of Wilckodontics. Teenagers in high school and adults that have certain professional responsibilities are two types of people that are especially well suited for the procedure.
If you’re interested in straightening your teeth as quickly as possible, Wilckodontics could very well be the solution you’re looking for.

Significant orthodontic problems can take years to rectify. But many people, especially as they get older, don’t want to deal with braces for two or even three years. Up until recently, if you weren’t willing to commit to long treatment times, you simply lived with misaligned teeth. In addition to the aesthetic drawbacks, this could lead to a myriad of other issues, from headaches to cracked teeth.
