Types of Treatment
We offer various types of treatment depending on your specific concerns, age and lifestyle.
The appropriate orthodontic treatment can not only perfect the alignment of your teeth, it can also improve the position of your lips as well as your overall profile making most adults look younger and all patients more attractive.
Superior retainers and ongoing support and care ensure long term stability of your treatment so that you have a beautiful smile for the rest of your life.
3M Clarity Advanced ceramic braces
These clear brackets are the latest, most efficient and discrete brackets available and therefore very popular for adults or older teenagers.
These particular ceramic braces work the same as metal braces but you can hardly see them, especially when they are used in conjunction with tooth coloured wires.
3M metallic braces
Being made by 3M, these braces have the same precision as the ceramic braces and are very small and thin. Many younger patients prefer these types of braces as they like to customise them with colours around them. These colours can be changed every visit.
Invisalign is an alternative way of aligning your teeth and improving your bite. It consists of a series of transparent plastic aligners that you change every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured to gradually shift your teeth into place.
Invisalign uses the latest software and technology that is custom-made for your teeth with the planned movement devised by Dr Pitsis and Invisalign.
In 2001 Dr Pitsis was one of the first 6 orthodontists in Australia to be first accredited to use Invisalign. He also became a Platinum and Elite Platinum Invisalign Provider in the years that followed, making him one of Australia's most experienced orthodontists to use Invisalign.
AcceleDent is hands free device used for 20 minutes a day in conjunction with braces or Invisalign, designed to reduce treatment time by 30% and up to 50% when used with Invisalign. It generates gentle micro-pulses to intricately accelerate tooth movement by stimulating the bone and blood vessels around your teeth.
It also helps make your treatment feel even more comfortable as your teeth will move through your bone easier. Our adult patients in particular have never been more excited to commence treatment due to the significant reduction in their treatment time.
Different types of appliances like expanders and plates can be used to modify the position of the upper or lower jaw in growing children to not only correct the way their teeth meet but to also perfect the way their face and profile look. The can also minimise or eliminate orthodontic treatment and the need for orthognathic surgery.
If you have past your adolescent growth and your upper and/or lower jaw are too long or short, orthodontic treatment combined with jaw surgery by an Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon can produce amazing results for your smile and face.
