Dr. Pistolas' Invented/Custom Appliances
Dr. Pistolas has invented or modified existing growth appliances which assist him in the Functional Orthodontic Treatment of his patients. These appliances are used to correct physical discrepancies of growth and development in both jaws. Some of these appliances are listed below.
Dr. Pistolas has also invented a series of TMJ appliances which he uses in the treatment of Temporal Mandibular Dysfunction(TMD). This is a serious debilitating relationship which causes limited mouth opening and can be associated with noises in the joint and/or pain in the head and neck.
Dr. Pistolas will be happy to explain the function of each at consultation.
