Purpose: This article presents a literature review and the clinical case of a 46 year woman with left unilateral posterior crossbite and vertical hypoplasia, successfully treated by stimulation of transverse and vertical alveolar growth.
Subject and Method: The patient was treated by periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO), including corticotomy, micro-osteoperforations and bone graft with lyophilized particles of 300-600 micro m.
Results: The amount of expansion obtained in first premolar teeth was 2.25 mm; in second premolar were 2, 25 mm; in first molar was 1.36 mm and in second molar was 3.25 mm. The axial inclination of posterior teeth post-treatment shows that the teeth are not extruded from their cortical while the expansion is produced and there is no over inclination of the crowns. Time of treatment: 12 months.
Discussion: Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics, through corticotomy, micro-osteoperforations and bone graft, accelerated the orthodontic dental movement, solving the case promptly as confirmed by other authors.
Conclusion: The alveolar stimulus through the PAOO is a procedure that allows the alveolar transverse growth without producing harmful effects to the periodontium and without affecting the inclinacion of the maxillary posterior teeth.
