Award-Winning Orthodontist for Pitts Braces in Citrus Heights, CA

Achieve Your Most Aesthetic Smile in Less Time

At DeLurgio Orthodontics, we’re committed to offering you the most advanced treatment options using the latest advancements in orthodontics. For those who desire a straight smile but are concerned about the length of treatment, we’re pleased to offer Pitts braces in Citrus Heights, CA. The Pitts 21™ system is the next generation of orthodontic care, featuring light force and low friction to move your teeth into their ideal position faster and more efficiently.

What Are Pitts Braces?

The Pitts 21™ system is a low-friction, self-ligating system of braces that offers 3D control throughout treatment for accurate and predictable results. It features lighter appliances and more precise movement for shorter treatment times. Additionally, since they are self-ligating, Pitts braces don’t use rubber bands, making them more discreet than traditional metal braces.

What Makes Pitts Braces Unique?

Aside from advancements in comfort, speed, hygiene, and control, the Pitts system is unique in the placement of the actual brackets. Part of the Pitts system is Smile Arc Protection (SAP) and Vertical Incisor Display (VID), which means the brackets can be placed further up and closer to the gums on the tooth surface than traditional brackets. This increases tooth visibility, creates a curved smile line, and results in a wider, more bold smile.

Why Do You Like This Smile?

Here at DeLurgio Orthodontics we consider these things:

  • Smile Arc
  • Full Buccal Corridors
  • Full Visual Incisor Display
  • Gingival Display
  • Esthetic Flow

What is it?

Smile Arc Protection brackets are placed more gingival (closer to the gums) than traditional brackets resulting in a beautiful curved smile line and increased tooth display.

  • Improved facial Esthetics
  • Created Youthful Hollywood Smile
  • Beautiful Broad Smile Follows Curvature of Lower Lip
  • Reduce Flaring of Front Teeth
  • Reduces Dark Corridors in Corners of Mouth
  • Improves Performance of the Appliance

Smile Arc is when the edges of your top teeth follow the curve of your lower lip. The ideal Smile Arc has full teeth display with curvature parallel to the curvature of the lower lip as shown here.

A straight flat smile line is less pleasing. A reverse curve where the front teeth appear to be shorter than the canines gives a look of aging and wear and can be quite unattractive.

Andrea T’s Smile Arc Story

I was nervous about getting braces at 25. Because, yes, of course people will notice. But it’ll only be a big deal if you make it one. I am fortunate, at my ortho office about a third of the patients are adults and I’m not the only one. I could already see my progress in 3 months and my smile had character. Dr. DeLurgio already knew what she wanted for me when she saw my smile and told me about the Pitts 21 brackets. I told her I trusted her and as a result I definitely had fewer appointments, no broken brackets, anesthetic braces smile with no extractions. She even told me I would have fuller lips at the end of my treatment and I do! Because there are many things to consider when deciding to get braces as an adult, it’s important that you work with someone you trust and who can give you the best care possible. When Dr. DeLurgio approached me about writing my experience, I was glad to do it because she made my complicated case feel less intimidating and more fun. She is so smart and always took a genuine interest in me as a patient. I always appreciated how excited she was to treat me and took the time to explain each step of the process along the way. I am forever grateful to have Dr. DeLurgio as my orthodontist because nobody would care for her patients the way she does.

Benefits of Pitts Braces

The benefits of Pitts braces are numerous and include:

  • Shorter treatment times
  • Shorter appointment times
  • Smooth, rounded edges for maximum comfort
  • Brackets that fit closer to the teeth for less irritation and more comfortable wear
  • Easier brushing and flossing for better hygiene

"I wasn’t very excited when I found out I had to get braces for what was estimated to be two years. Thankfully Dr. Delurgio introduced me to the Acceledent device which saved me an entire year. My braces are off earlier than I expected and my teeth and bite are perfect. I couldn’t be happier with the results."*

"My younger son's braces were off earlier than expected and he loved the result of how his teeth were aligned. It's really worth to see these Drs Blom and Delurgio. They're so nice they made my son comfortable and really professional including their staff. Sadly, Dr Blom already retired from his practice but with Dr Delurgio now in-charge I'm so confident with her that my other son who just started his braces late last year is getting improvement with his teeth."*
