The orthodontic treatment is perhaps in terms of duration, the longest performed dental procedure. To accelerate tooth movement, orthodontists and periodontists together have worked out a successful technique termed as Wilckodontics, commonly known as periodontally accelerated osteogenic orthodontics. It is an emerging technology in the field of dentistry. Wilckodontics has solved the dilemma of rapid tooth movement by exploiting the dynamics of bone physiology and redirecting the emphasis in tooth movement to the manner in which the supporting bone responds to orthodontic forces. In this article, a 27-year-old male, with a Class I moderately crowded malocclusion, elected to undergo this new treatment option, due to the estimated reduction in treatment time. This case report shows one case of lower anterior crowding done using this technique. The total orthodontic treatment, from bracketing to debracketing, required exactly 6 months, with 12 orthodontic adjustments.
