DSD SFOT Guide:
Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy (SFOT) is an advanced procedure that pinpoints the underlying problems of insufficient alveolar bone and compromised arch forms to optimally enhance functional and esthetic concerns. A major advantage to patients is that SFOT can significantly decrease the amount of treatment time by more than 50% and then, and combined with clear aligner therapy, can increase case acceptance. Also, the procedure allows certain movements to be done, that without the technique it wouldn’t be possible. In many cases, the combination with bone graft on the buccal plate is highly recommended (e.g. xenograft - Bioss)
DSD has created a SFOT guide that allows the surgeon to precisely perform a corticotomy procedure. By performing a SFOT procedure, a significant decrease in the amount of overall treatment time can be obtained. Using the DSD SFOT Guide, you can better ensure that the treatment will follow the DSD Ideal Smile Design for your patient. Our specialized team will diagnose and suggest exactly where the procedure is necessary and recommend the need for bone graft, if required, in order to allow the teeth to move to the approved final ideal position.
