PAOO – SFOT
Periodontal accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO), also known as Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (SFOT) is a clinical procedure that combines selective alveolar corticotomy, particulate bone grafting, and the application of orthodontic forces. This procedure is theoretically based on the bone healing pattern known as the regional acceleratory phenomenon (RAP).
PAOO/SFOT results in an increase in alveolar bone width, shorter orthodontic treatment time, increased post-treatment stability, and decreased amounts of apical root resorption.
Our team works closely with your orthodontist throughout the entire treatment process to ensure the ideal results can be achieved.
