Wilckodontics is an exciting new treatment that moves teeth up to four times faster compared to braces alone. Treatment begins with a minimally-invasive surgery, where special techniques are used to soften bone tissue and allow teeth to move faster once braces are applied. The process is completely safe and results in a stronger, more solid bone structure once complete.

With cutting-edge Wilckodontics in our Seattle office, patients who have put off desired or necessary orthodontic treatment now have a suitable option. And virtually anyone who is a candidate for either traditional or lingual braces (braces behind the teeth) is a candidate for Wilckodontics!

Over 10 years of research has culminated in the development of a new procedure by which teeth can be moved approximately 4 times faster than ever before possible with conventional orthodontics. As a result, the treatment time for most orthodontic cases can be reduced to 3 to 8 months. This new patented method is a combination of time-tested and proven techniques from the fields of orthodontics and periodontics and is called the Accelerated Osteogenic OrthodonticsTM (AOOTM) procedure.

With the new AOOTM procedure, patients who would have declined conventional orthodontics strictly due to the length of treatment now have a viable alternative. This group of patients has tended to include adolescents who do not want to wear braces for 1 1/2 to 3 years while in high school and adults whose social or professional responsibilities would preclude their wearing braces for a long period of time. The AOOTM procedure is feasible for most patients, regardless of age, as long as their permanent teeth are present.

In May of 1998 the AOOTM procedure was introduced at the 98th Annual Session of the American Association of Orthodontics through a table clinic, doctor’s roundtable discussion, and a scientific poster board presentation. Since that meeting, dozens of studies have been published examining the benefits of the Wilkodontics system.
