The AOO clinical procedure will be discussed with a strong emphasis on understanding which procedures create the accelerated movements and which procedures contribute to the increased range of movements and increased long-term stability. Additional physiological benefits of the AOO procedure include greater periodontal support for the teeth following treatment, increased bone surrounding the roots of teeth in the direction of movement and the ability to cover some pre-existing bone loss. A thorough understanding of various types of orthodontically induced bone response is important in choosing the correct treatment plan for each of our patients. A variety of orthodontic treatments will be addressed including difficult situations and surgically assisted exposure cases with patients ranging from young adolescents to older adults.
Discuss which procedures create the accelerated effects and which procedures create the osteogenic effects.
Recognize the variety of orthodontic problems that can be addressed with the AOO procedure and the clinical approaches needed to treat our patients.
Comprehend how treatment with the AOO Procedure is possible with fewer extractions but with improved long-term results.
