2017 Annual Session Conference

AS17B27C - Corticotomies or Piezocision?

‐ Apr 23, 2017 1:25pm

A number of different clinical approaches have been used to try to accelerate orthodontic tooth movement (OTM). The amount of invasiveness required to effectively increase OTM rate and how they affect the patients’ quality of life remain unclear. This lecture will present results from a RCT that compared the effects of Regional Alveolar Corticotomies and Piezocision to accelerate OTM in adult patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss whether Corticotomies or Piezocision are more effective in accelerating orthodontic tooth movement.
  • Compare the effects of Regional Corticotomies and Piezocision on the quality of life of the orthodontic patients.
  • Identify how these procedures could be routinely used in an orthodontic office.
