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.
Invisalign consists of a series of extremely thin, comfortable transparent plastic aligners that you change every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured to gradually shift your teeth into place to straighten your teeth and improve or correct your bite.
Invisalign uses the latest software and technology that is custom-made for your teeth with the planned movement devised by Dr Pitsis and Invisalign. A 3D digital scan of your teeth is taken and sent to Invisalign who places it on there software that allows Dr Pitsis to move any or all of your teeth to the dersired position. All the aligners are then manufactured and sent to Dr Pitsis who will usually see you every 6-8 weeks to monitor your treatment. This can be cusomised and varied depending on your personal preferences where Dr Pitsis can monitor your treatment every 3 months or longer if required.

The Benefits of Invisalign
They are extremely comfortable and almost invisible.
As the aligners are removeable, you can take them out to eat and drink whatever you like and brush as floss as normal.
With braces, you need to avoid certain foods like popcorn, spinach as well as very hard food. Brushing and flossing with braces requires more time and care. Braces sometimes get in the way of certain jobs, playing some musical instruments, sport, modeling or performing.
You can also use them to whiten your teeth with whitening gel.
If you happen to clench or grind your teeth at night or during the day, they provide protection against the wearing down of your teeth and can help relieve TMJ symptoms.
