CORTICOTOMIES

In case you want to speed up your orthodontic treatment and thus reduce the total duration of this treatment, or in the case where some teeth do not move despite optimal orthodontic traction, your orthodontist will refer you to Dr. Oth to perform an intervention called corticotomy.

  1. Increase the regional acceleration phenomenon and bone turnover
  2. Decrease the hardness of the bone around these teeth

Dr. Oth performs this procedure with the technique of piezosurgery. This machine from the latest technologies creates a vibration that avoids lesions of the soft tissues, achieve a corticotomy as fine and sharp as possible and reduce post-operative discomfort (swelling and pain).
