Dr Nelz has undertaken extensive postgraduate orthodontic training in the field of fixed and removable orthodontic appliances. We provide mainly adult orthodontic treatments using fixed braces and clear Aligner.
Treatment Example 1:
Crowded upper and especially lower front teeth had a very detrimental effect on the Patients Smile. Treatment with fixed braces and removal of one lower front tooth. Active treatment time ~ 6 months.
Treatment Example 2: upper and lower front teeth crowded. Treatment with ceramic braces and tooth coloured archwires.
Treatment included enamel reduction up-righting of upper and lower molars in order to gain space. Final teeth whitening and fixed retainers to complete the case.
Treatment Example 3: Removable Appliance (Inman Aligner)
The correction of the position of the upper front teeth took only 2 months. The appliance we used for this case was an ‘Inman Aligner’.
However the success of the Inman Aligner Treatment very much depends on the ability of the Patient to wear the appliance at least 14 hours a day. If that’s not possible and the patient rejects braces on the outside of the teeth we recommend lingual braces which are fixed on the ‘inside’ of the teeth.
