South Side Chicago Dentist
Do you want straighter teeth but don’t have time to commit to lengthy treatment? Our dentists offer Wilckodontics Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics to create beautiful smiles three to four times faster than traditional orthodontics.
Am I a candidate for fast-ortho?
Fast-ortho with Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics is ideal for adolescents and adults who want straighter front teeth but don’t want to undergo lengthy and often uncomfortable orthodontic treatment. Your dentist will assess your needs and discuss your expectations to determine if you’re an appropriate candidate.
What’s the average treatment time with Wilckodontics fast-ortho?
Most patients achieve their ideal smiles in three to eight months, much faster than treatment with traditional orthodontics.
How does Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics work?
Using local anesthesia, your dentist will make tiny, precisely placed incisions in your gums and insert bone grafting material. This temporarily decreases the bone’s mineral content and allows teeth to quickly move into their desired positions using braces or Wilckodontics oral appliances. The grafting material then combines with your bone and hardens to hold teeth in place. Lips are supported as well to eliminate that shrunken or curled in look than can occur as you age.
Will the grafting process hurt?
Most people report little or no discomfort and are often back at work or school a day or two following their treatment. As with any surgical procedure, minor swelling and bruising may occur.
