Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO) is a clinical procedure that combines selective alveolar corticotomy, particulate bone grafting and the application of orthodontic forces. PAOO can play an important role in the comprehensive treatment of a patient's occlusal and esthetic needs. This technique has been shown to increase alveolar bone thickness, decrease treatment time and enhance post-treatment orthodontic stability. Contained in this review is a discussion of the different aspects of PAOO and an assessment of its role in comprehensive treatment planning for the orthodontic patient.
