If the length of time in braces is holding you back from treatment Wilckodontics may be for you.  Teeth can be moved approximately 4 times faster.   The Brace Place has been offering Wilckodontics treatment since 2004 with wonderful results. 

To quote from the Wilckodontics literature:


Recent scientific advances have enhanced our understanding of healing and bone growth. Although bone is one of the hardest tissues in the body, it is very much alive. Because of its dense nature, bone changes very slowly. These changes in bone are called the “remodeling process.” By performing a minor periodontal procedure, this dense bone is softened, accelerating the remodeling process. It is this process of accelerated bone remodeling that sets the Wilckodontics system apart from conventional orthodontics.

This softened supporting bone permits the teeth to move into their new position more quickly.

Routine braces and specialized Wilckodontics appliances are still required to move the teeth. Once in position, the teeth are simply held in place while the supporting bone hardens around the teeth. Complete healing of the newly remodeled bone occurs in approximately 8 months. The Wilckodontics technique provides the patient with a beautiful, long-lasting smile, in the shortest time possible.

Now, this technique has been investigated, scrutinized and researched by our scientific community for about 9 years and the documentation has been very positive.

In the past, when patients came in asking if they could start and finish their orthodontic treatment in 8 to 12 months, most of the time the answer was that it would not be possible. Now, if a patient comes in and says that they have a special event (wedding, vacation, prom, graduation, moving out of state, going to college out of town, or any other special event) coming up in their lives that would require that their braces be removed prematurely, there is a chance that we can fulfill that request utilizing the Wilckodontics system.

We are happy to discuss Wilckodontics as an option for your treatment.  You may also contact Peridontist Dr. John Turner (541) 389-7257.
