The systematic interdisciplinary treatment approach is shared by several dental specialties especially periodontics. In the present era where a lot of people are seeking orthodontic treatment, the multidisciplinary treatment approach for quick and better results cannot be overlooked. Also, orthodontic treatment frequently results in undesirable periodontal changes since the teeth are confined to the nonflexible alveolar bone. To accelerate the tooth movement the orthodontists and the periodontists together have worked out a successful formula which is termed Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics (PAOO) or this method has been suggested to enhance tooth movement and, consequently, reduces orthodontic treatment time as a whole. This method not only enhances the width of the alveolar bone but also decreases the duration of the treatment and chances of apical root resoption, reducing the chances of relapse. A proper case selection, careful surgical procedure, and accurate orthodontic movements are important for the success of wilckodontics. Thus, this article attempts to review the historical perspective of these therapeutic approaches, discusses the biological reasons underlying its use, mentions its main indications and contraindications and its modifications. Keywords: Periodontics, orthodontic tooth movement, periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics
