Lincroft, NJ — At his orthodontics practice in New Jersey, Dr. Patrick Cuozzo says he has been employing an advanced technique for straightening teeth that has produced significant results in his patients. As new developments continue to emerge in the field, Dr. Cuozzo says he has dedicated numerous hours to staying up-to-date with the latest procedures, such as the Alexander Principles System for dental braces, and is excited about the results he has been able to achieve through the new technology. He says he hopes to continue utilizing the Alexander LST System to improve his patients’ smiles and overall self-confidence.
The New Jersey orthodontist offers a wide variety of procedures at his practice ranging from adult and child orthodontics to Invisalign® and orthodontic appliances. Dr. Cuozzo says employing the Alexander System to his treatment approach was based on the quality of the final results achieved and the reduced amount of time required to position teeth. Thanks to several unique features of the Alexander LST Principles, he says he is able to maintain optimal control during treatment and produce a beautiful finished smile.
Based on biologically compatible forces, Dr. Cuozzo says the Alexander System combines advanced rectangular wires early on in treatment with a customized inter-bracket distance to reduce the amount of pressure placed on teeth and enhance patient comfort. He says the treatment focuses on building the patient’s smile on the lower anterior teeth in order to provide the highest level of stability and precision throughout the entire procedure. Dr. Cuozzo says the result is rapid tooth movement with minimal discomfort to the patient.
As a diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics and a teacher at an Ivy League school, Dr. Cuozzo says maintaining an intimate knowledge of the latest techniques and technology in orthodontics is essential for providing the best results for one’s patients. He says he is always eager to pursue the most effective treatments at his practice and looks forward to continuing to perfect his approach to the Alexander System. Additionally, for any patient considering orthodontic treatment, whether it be lingual braces or Invisalign in New Jersey, Dr. Cuozzo says he strongly recommends consulting with a board-certified orthodontist before making the decision to undergo a procedure:
“Choosing a board-certified orthodontist to perform the Alexander System assures that patients are receiving the highest quality orthodontic treatment available. To become board-certified, applicants must pass a lengthy written exam along with a presentation of several case studies to further evaluate the performance of the orthodontist, which is extremely important to the completion of safe and effective procedures.”
