Periodontally Accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO) / Alveolar osteogenic orthodontics/ Regional accelerated phenomenon (RAP)
It combines selective alveolar corticotomy, bone grafting along with application of orthodontic forces. This accelerates tooth movement 2-3 times faster than the traditional orthodontic treatment.
RAP is suitable for any age group with healthy gums and bone (from 11 years to 77 years of age). It is also suitable for people who wish to decrease their treatment time.
After performing PAOO, orthodontic treatment initiated within 2 weeks after surgery.
The orthodontist has a limited amount of time to speed up tooth movement. This period is usually 4 to 6 months, after which finishing movements occur with a normal speed.
