From 2006-2009, he attended a three-year postgraduate programme in Orthodontics (including a Masters degree in orthodontics) in “Maurice and Gabriella Goldschleger School of Dental Medicine” in Tel Aviv, Israel, acquiring the MOrth title.
Since 2010, Dr. Tamassios is a member of the World Federation of Orthodontists (WFO), the American Association of Orthodontics, the Cyprus Dental Association and the Cyprus Orthodontic company. He has received certification for all the techniques applied at the clinic (MBT – metal braces, Incognito, Invisalign, Damon) and, since then, he undertakes cases that require orthodontic treatment in adults and children.
Orthodontic treatment with metal braces.
Metal/conventional braces are made of stainless steel and are the most common orthodontic treatment method. Fortunately, nowadays they are smaller, more convenient and more stylish than ever. They can be made even more elegant when combined with coloured binding elastic ties. We offer a variety of colours to choose from.
Orthodontic treatment with clear braces.
Clear braces are more aesthetically appealing compared to the conventional ceramic braces. They are made of monocrystalline sapphire and are completely transparent (regardless of tooth shade, they are hardly perceived). Apart from their aesthetic advantage over metal braces, their smooth surface in conjunction with their rounded edges provide great comfort to the patient.
Orthodontic treatment with lingual braces (Incognito).
Lingual braces are placed on the palatal/ lingual surface of the teeth. They are practical and are not perceived at all when talking or smiling. At the same time, they do not injure the tongue at all because of their smooth surface. Both the braces as well as the wires are made exclusively for each patient and are an excellent aesthetic treatment technique. It is almost impossible for someone to realise that you are wearing braces!
Orthodontic treatment with clear aligners (Invisalign).
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is the most innovative treatment technique since it does not use any braces. It consists of a series of completely transparent aligners which are exclusively made for each patient. Each aligner should be worn for almost 24 hours a day in order for the treatment to be effective and should be replaced by the following aligner every 2 weeks. The number of aligners required depends on how complicated each case is. Basically, the teeth are moved slowly and methodically until the desired effect is achieved.
Orthodontic treatment with self-ligating braces (Damon System).
The Damon System is a revolutionary approach to orthodontic treatment because of the type of hook that is bonded to the tooth. Unlike metal braces, this system does not use elastic fastenings, but a rolling mechanism that secures the wire into the hook. The most important advantage of self-ligating braces is the rapid progress of the treatment and the reduction of clinical visits.
