Orthodontic Treatment Takes too Long

Pittsburgh Implants and Periodontics - Dr. Mark WeingardenOrthodontic treatment has become more popular in the last two decades.  It helps patients to have a beautiful smile, to improve chewing ability and to reduce food impaction between teeth.  However, traditional orthodontics typically requires patients to be in braces for 2 to 3 years.  The long duration of treatment is often a big “put-off” for many adults, as braces are difficult to keep clean and they can cause discomfort.

What is Periodontally Accelerated Orthodontics?

A new technique, called Periodontally Accelerated Orthodontics, could be an alternative.  With the help of minor periodontal surgeries, teeth can be aligned by braces in only 6-8 months.  In addition, Periodontally Accelerated Orthodontics can reduce the risks of recession, the need for jaw surgery and the chance of future relapse.  PAO is currently a hot topic of discussion at national dental conferences.

Dr. Mark Weingarden will be attending a seminar related to this technique at the end of June.  Follow us online for more information.
