Our department is pioneering research in orthodontics and tooth movement through CTOR, the Consortium for Translational Orthodontic Research. Numerous animal and clinical studies are underway, investigating ways to move teeth faster and safer and strengthen the bones of the jaws.

CTOR symposium

Our most recent innovation is our newly patented method which is shown to accelerate tooth movement as much as 50% in early-phase clinical studies, safely and effectively.
