Comparative Evaluation of Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (PAOO) Versus Conventional Orthodontic Tooth Movement in Adult Patients with Bimaxillary Dentoalveolar Protrusion
Singh, Sangeeta / Jayan, Balakrishnan
The aim of the study was to comparatively evaluate periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO) and conventional fixed orthodontic mechanotherapy in the management of bimaxillary dentoalveolar protrusion in adults. The selected patients were grouped into two groups: Group I: PAOO procedure followed by orthodontic fixed mechanotherapy; Group II: orthodontic fixed mechanotherapy alone. The total treatment time, the quantum of root resorption, and the periodontal status of Group I and Group II were compared. Group I had a shorter treatment time and stable overall periodontal health, both of which were statistically significantly different compared to Group II. Within the limitations of this study, significant statistical differences were found in the clinical and radiographic parameters among the patients treated with PAOO along with conventional fixed orthodontic therapy as compared to the patients treated with orthodontic therapy alone.
