A crooked, uneven smile can make you feel insecure about your appearance. It can also negatively impact your health. Many people avoid straightening their teeth for fear about the length of time they will need to spend in traditional braces. Traditional metal braces are typically worn for about two years to provide effective treatment of misalignment. PAOO™ can drastically decrease that treatment time, so that your smile is straightened in a much shorter amount of time. PAOO™ is an acronymn for Peridontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics. PAOO™ can help your smile in a shorter amount of time.
What To Expect
PAOO™ alters the bone surrounding the roots, which causes a rapid acceleration phenomenon. The bone allows the teeth to shift more quickly and easily. PAOO™ treatment is done by a professional periodontist usually referred by a dentist or orthodontist. PAOO™ treatment is designed to help speed up the pace of shifting your teeth into the correct alignment. Usually it takes about one-third of the time used for traditional orthodontics to straighten your teeth.
Benefits of a Straighter Smile
Patients with misaligned teeth often find difficulty with their brushing or flossing routine. Food remains caught between teeth, which becomes a feast for bacteria. The bacteria builds up in the nooks and crannies created by overlapping teeth. Increased oral acidity and bacteria buildup heightens the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Misaligned teeth create undue pressure on the jaw joints that leads to a chance of developing TMJ disorder and/or teeth grinding, also known as bruxism.
Qualifying For Treatment
Not every patient is a good candidate for PAOO™ treatment. To see if you do qualify, your periodontist will need to examine your smile. After assessing the cause and severity of your misalignment, it can be determined if PAOO™ is the best option for your smile. If you do not qualify, your dentist, orthodontist, and periodontist can provide you with ways to get your smile in a healthy, straight position.
