An Innovative Approach of Skeletal Maxillary Bilateral Posterior Crossbite Correction with Decortication and Bone Autograft Augmentation

Context: Deliberate periodontium damage caused by either corticotomy, piezocision or microosteoperforation causes increased remodelling of the alveolar bone due to regional acceleratory phenomena leading to rapid movement of the tooth. Periodontal bone graft augmentation provides the periodontium with structural integrity, reducing tell-tale relapse incidence. The procedures advocated for the accelerated correction of the skeletal maxillary…
