Large tooth movements occurred efficiently within the weeks following the surgery.

Corticotomy-Assisted Orthodontic Treatment: Review

Stability was reported as one of the advantages of corticotomy-assisted orthodontics [ 24 ]. Traditionally, the only treatment option for patients requiring tooth movement beyond the scope of orthodontic camouflage was a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. Orthop Clin N Am. The success seen oethodontics this case is not from orthodongics speed of orthodontics, but from the dramatic range of tooth movements achieved without orthognathic surgery and without adverse sequelae to the teeth and periodontium.

The most important factors in the success of this technique is proper case selection and careful surgical and orthodontic treatment. After administration of local anesthesia, crevicular incision is made buccally and lingually extending at least two to three teeth beyond the area to be treated. Abstract Corticotomy-assisted orthodontic treatment is an established and efficient orthodontic technique that has recently been studied in a number of publications.

Journal List Saudi Dent J v. The reduced treatment duration of CAOT may reduce the risk of root resorption. Orthodontics combined with selective alveolar decortication and bone augmentation can lead to dramatic outcomes and, when appropriate, may be an alternative for borderline orthognathic surgical candidates. Closing anterior open bites by intruding molars with titanium miniplate anchorage.


Surgical operations on the alveolar ridge to correct occlusal abnormalities.

Surgical traction of impacted teeth, especially the canines, is a frustrating and lengthy procedure. Root resorption and tooth movement in orthodontically treated, calcium-deficient, and lactating rats. Alterations in osseous crestal height following interdental osteotomies. Cortictomy was found odthodontics increase tooth movement for at least 2 weeks after the surgery and to limit the hyalinization of the periodontal ligaments on the alveolar wall to the first week after corticotomy.

The patient was seen every two weeks in order to assess the treatment progress and to advance the orthodontic tooth movement. BoxJeddahSaudi Arabia. Introduction Dental arch crowding cotricotomy one of the most common form of malocclusion. Please review our privacy policy. The osteopenia enables rapid tooth movement because teeth are supported by and moved through orthodojtics bone. Corticotomy-facilitated orthodontic treatment was found to result in better retention compared to conventional orthodontic treatment [ 2428 ].

Corticotomy-facilitated Orthodontics and Goal-oriented Treatment Planning

Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthoped. Mechanical and Biological Basis in Orthodontic Therapy.

Intrusion can also be obtained using other orthodontic treatment approaches without selective corticotomies; however, this requires a longer active treatment time. Corticotomy facilitated orthodontics has been employed in various forms over the past to speed up orthodontic treatments.

This technique is similar to conventional corticotomy except that selective decortication in the form of lines and points is performed over all of the teeth that are to be moved.


Selective alveolar corticotomy to intrude overerupted molars.

Corticotomy-Facilitated Orthodontics and Goal-Oriented Treatment Planning – Spear Education

It was concluded that neither the pulp nor the periodontium was damaged following orthodontic tooth movement after corticotomy surgery Duker, The mean active treatment time for the corticotomy-facilitated group was 6. The influence of accelerated osteogenic response on mandibular de- crowding [thesis] St Louis: CAOT was used in the treatment of bimaxillary protrusion as an adjunct to manipulate skeletal anchorage without any adverse side effects in only one-third of the regular treatment time [ 41 ].

Contraindications and Limitations Patients with active periodontal disease or gingival recession are not good candidates for CAOT. The mechanism behind CAOT can be summarized as the induction of bone metabolism via decortication lines and points around the teeth to be moved to enhance bone and periodontal turnover, resulting in a transient stage of osteopenia during treatment.

Long-term research on pulpal vitality after rapid movement has not been evaluated in the literature. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Care should be taken not to place an excessive amount of bone graft which might interfere with flap placement.

The cuts are connected beyond the apices of the teeth with scalloped horizontal cuts and cortical perforations are made at selective areas.
