Abstract


There is an increased tendency for researchers to specialise in accelerating methods for tooth movement; thanks to the greater demand of adults for a shorter treatment duration.  Long treatment time has many disadvantages such as higher predisposition to caries, gingival recession and root resorption; this increases the demand to increase tooth movement with the least possible disadvantages. Many techniques have been introduced for accelerating the tooth movement. Thus, accelerating orthodontic tooth movement is quite beneficial as it reduces the treatment duration.

 

Keywords: Accelerated orthodontic tooth movement (AOTM), corticotomy, peizocision, cyclic vibrations, micro-osteoperforation (MOP)
