This presentation will demonstrate the clinical periodontal procedures of periodontally accelerated osteogenic orth≠odontics (PAOO). Although PAOO decreases orthodontic treatment time, this presentation will emphasize the increase of the alveolar ridge width as a result of this therapy. Modifications of the surgical protocol that enhance the predictability of the surgical outcomes, including the use of temporary anchorage devices, will be discussed. Patients frequently present with the need for both orthodontic and gingival augmentation procedures. The combination of gingival augmentation and PAOO procedures will also be demonstrated. Participants will learn to recognize the clinical situations whereby gingival augmentation and PAOO procedures may be combined in a single surgical visit.
