Surgically Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics in Chicago
Orthodontic treatment is an extensive commitment for patients in search of a straighter, healthier smile – in fact, treatment can typically span from one to three years, requiring involved maintenance and many additional appointments along the way. Is this isn’t ideal for your needs, there’s another solution – surgically accelerated osteogenic orthodontics.
Surgically accelerated osteogenic orthodontics is commonly referred to as “Wilcodontics” after the pair of dentists who popularized it, and it involves making enhancements to both the region around the patient’s teeth and the bone where the teeth are situated in order to improve their responses to orthodontic treatment and accelerate movement. Bone augmentation is also performed to ensure stable results. Both adolescent patients and adult patients can be treated successfully with this method.
Dr. Firas Katabi and Dr. Emily Smythe offer this transformative care treatment approach at Armitage Oral Surgery, working alongside orthodontists so that patients can enjoy stellar results that exceed their expectations. Now, orthodontic treatment that once required years to be fully successful can be completed in as little as four months. Our Chicago, IL practice is open to referrals and new patients from Oak Park, IL and surrounding areas.
