Wilckodontics combines orthodontic (tooth movement) and periodontal procedures to obtain the most ideal orthodontic result. Drs. Godat and Craddock are the only periodontists certified to perform Wilckodontics procedures in the MidSouth, and they have been performing these procedures since 2002.
The main benefit of Wilckodontics is the prevention of periodontal problems, by ensuring there is a strong foundation of bone and gum to support the stability of teeth during and after tooth movement. Wilckodontics uses the surrounding bone structure to aid in creating an even, healthy smile, instead of battling against it.
Wilckodontics is often combined with Invisalign or Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) to achieve movement of teeth into functional, aesthetically pleasing arches without the need for traditional braces.
