Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO) is a clinical procedure using a combination of alveolar corticotomy, particulate bone grafting followed by the application of orthodontic forces. This procedure is based on a phenomenon known as regional acceleratory phenomenon. The advantages of PAOO include increased width of alveolar bone, shortened treatment time, increased postoperative stability, and decreased chances of root resorption. PAOO leads to a transient stage of osteopenia which helps in faster tooth movement. A more stable periodontium is provided by this technique due to the augmented bone volume. Furthermore, there is decreased need for extractions and an increased bony support for teeth and overlying soft tissues, thereby improving the gingival and facial esthetics. This case report describes a surgical technique involving corticotomy-assisted orthodontic treatment.
