Is Dr Fanelli an orthodontist?
No. Dr Fanelli is a general dentist who has a keen interest in orthodontic treatment. He has completed extensive studies and residencies in Australia and around the world with leaders in the field of functional orthodontics for the past 30 years. As a general dentist, Dr Fanelli has seen how orthodontics can have a positive impact on other areas of dentistry including the bite, jaw function, sleep health and restorative dentistry such as crowns, veneers, fillings and dental implants.
Dr Fanelli continues his studies each year with a group of like-minded and passionate dentists from around the world who believe the importance of not just straightening teeth for aesthetic purposes, but also developing healthy airways and breathing, optimal facial aesthetics, well-developed tongue posture and facial muscles.
Realising that traditional braces with brackets and wires do not fit neatly into every adult lifestyle, Dr Fanelli offers modern clear braces to move teeth without letting on that you are undergoing treatment. Invisalign is a more comfortable and convenient way to achieve a straight smile, often in less time than it takes to complete traditional orthodontics.
