HOBOKEN, N.J., Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- You do not need to wait years for that perfect smile anymore!


Orthodontics offers the most advanced Orthodontics treatment because our Orthodontists are also the scientists who develop groundbreaking technologies that use biology to increase the speed of tooth movement, expand the limits of orthodontic correction
and, in many cases, provide non-surgical treatment to patients with significant jaw imbalances.

"Orthognathic surgery is not the only option for correction of severe jaw and bite problems," says Dr. Mani Alikhani, Director and Co-Founder of CTOR. "Patients with complex problems travel from different parts of country to have non-surgical treatment at our center," which is located in Hoboken, New Jersey. "Our treatments are safe, minimally invasive and faster compared to current Orthodontics treatments – regardless of the patient's bite."

CTOR is a unique private translational research center where clinical research, basic science and education are merged to not only develop breakthrough Orthodontics treatments, but also to revolutionize Orthodontics practice, research and education.

"Advances in Orthodontics cannot be made in isolation in the lab or in the clinic," says Dr. Cristina Teixeira, Co-Founder of CTOR. "We are ensuring that sound biological principles underlie our treatment innovations and that future Orthodontists learn both the biology and the clinical applications of our innovations. Just as important, we are making our training available to already practicing Orthodontists who are looking to expand their skill set and offer a fuller range of treatment options to their patients."

Education is a critical component of the CTOR business model. Since 2008, 36 graduates from the CTOR Fellowship program have contributed to each of CTOR's 7 patents for innovative Orthodontics appliances. "We take great pride in our graduates, who come to us from around the world," says Dr. Sarah Alansari, CTOR Fellowship Director and CTOR Fellowship alum. "My Orthodontics training at NYU was greatly enhanced by my extensive basic and clinical training at CTOR. I can offer my patients the latest advances in accelerated Orthodontics utilizing appliances that I helped develop. Very few Orthodontists have this opportunity and now I help train future generations of Orthodontists who will think of their CTOR training as the gold standard for the profession."

On October 5th 2017 (2:30-4:00 pm), CTOR will celebrate the opening of their state of the art new center in Hoboken with Mayor Dawn Zimmer. Anyone interested in meeting the CTOR Team and seeing our state-of-the-art facilities is welcome to join us.

CTOR is leading the field in accelerated, safe and minimally invasive Orthodontics treatments. Our people share this passion. Stop by or contact us to learn more about the exciting things CTOR is working on to propel Orthodontics forward.
