Your executive orthodontic practice in Melbourne


Today, a myriad of orthodontic options are available to patients and modern techniques mean we can transform your smile to a higher standard with longer lasting results. Some of the latest treatment options we perform include Invisalign, metal and ceramic braces and early treatment, for our littlest of patients. Dr Theresia Sudjalim also works closely with Melbourne’s highly regarded surgeons to perform an array of surgical orthodontic treatments.


At South Yarra Orthodontics, we aim to provide you with the highest quality orthodontic treatment in a professional, customised and caring environment. We understand that each of our patients is unique and expects the very finest in orthodontic care, that’s why we listen carefully to you and discuss with you all the suitable options available to you. Personal, impeccable treatment will be delivered to each patient.

Invisalign is one of the greatest breakthroughs in orthodontics to date thanks to the innovative technology of the removable, almost invisible aligners. With 3D scans and technical photos, Invisalign is a totally customised experience. The aligners will put gradual pressure on each individual tooth to create a natural, straight smile. Apart from the obvious aesthetic benefits Invisalign provides, other benefits include:

  • Maintain your oral hygiene and reduce your risk of gum disease
  • Keep eating the foods you love
  • Straighten your teeth discreetly with the see through aligners
  • Reduce pain and irritation often associated with traditional braces
  • You will schedule your orthodontic appointments further apart
  • Suitable for a range of orthodontic concerns

For many of our patients having their mouth open for long periods of time while their teeth are being examined can be an uncomfortable experience. We have implemented an Intra-oral scanner to capture the shape of your teeth and your bite. The scans we perform in our South Yarra practice can be sent to laboratories throughout Australia to analyse your mouth, and construct your individualised orthodontic appliance.

The Itero intra-oral scanner is equipped to scan both your upper and lower teeth at once and will only take approximately 5-10 minutes. For patients undergoing Invisalign treatment, an instant treatment simulation of your bite correction can be demonstrated after your scan is completed. You can see the future of your results almost instantly.
