Periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics (PAOO) is a combination of a selective decortication facilitated orthodontic technique and alveolar augmentation. With this technique, one is no longer at the mercy of the preexisting alveolar volume, and teeth can be moved two to three times further than required for traditional orthodontic therapy. It is used to treat moderate-to-severe malocclusions in both adolescents and adults. PAOO technique increases alveolar volume which can provide a more intact periodontium, inturn decreases need for extractions, increases a degree of facial reshaping. This technique also increases the bony support for both the teeth and the overlying soft tissues. Here is a case report which highlights the above-mentioned uses with PAOO technique in a severe periodontally compromised Class II division1 malocclusion patient treated with nonextraction line of orthodontic treatment.
