New Exciting Things at Nirenblatt Orthodontics!

August 7th, 2019

It's been a while since I've posted an entry, 2019 has been a busy year to say the least. I started making and producing my very own aligner system n-line, my son Daniel was selected to compete in the National Geographic GeoBee, my daughter Ellen completed her Freshman year at GW in Washington D.C. Oh, and last, but not least I am in the process of opening a third location right here in Summerville, SC.

Our newest location will be right beside the Rustic Muffin in Cane Bay. We anticipate opening by October 2019. Bringing our services to Summerville gives us a great opportunity to grow our patient family. It will also be much more convenient for our current Summerville patients. We are so excited to become part of such a great community. If you or someone you know is interested in checking out our new office please give us a call for a FREE smile evaluation. You may reach us at 843-769-9999. We will be offering teeth whitening, retainer repair or replacements, gold braces, clear braces, silver braces, and clear aligners!! Nirenblatt Orthodontics is happy to treat patients of all ages which is why we offer a free smile evaluation.

This is a busy time of year for most whether you have kids going back to school or fitting in that last weekend trip before summer ends. If you have FOMO and still want to explore your options for straightening your teeth our new virtual consultation is right for you. Check out our website www.drnirenblatt.com and watch the video on how to submit photos. We will then contact you with a treatment plan that fits your needs.

Thank you for taking the time to catch up with me. I hope to see you soon!!

Invisalign is an art and science

Invisalign Spacing

Orthodontic treatment may include retainers which are  fixed or "permanent".  These retainers give the best long term result to keep teeth from relapsing. In the art of Orthodontics retention is planned from the beginning of treatment and our patients receive anywhere from 2 to 4 types of retainers which may include removable and fixed retainers.

This case is an Invisalign patient that I treated incorporating the science and art required to achieve an optimum result. We worked closely with her dentist in preparation for new partial dentures.

The story of the three impacted canine teeth

Here is the story of three impacted canine teeth that Dr. Nirenblatt saved by bringing them carefully into the mouth. Somewhere along their journey to the mouth they got tired and could not travel anymore.  Two were hiding in the upper jaw and one in the lower jaw. They all made it into the mouth safely without damaging any of the other teeth. He also helped close the large diastema (space) between the front teeth. Did you know that the upper canine teeth frequently become impacted because they are the last set of the front permanent to erupt and they have the longest journey to travel?

Teen extraction with tip-edge braces to correct crowding and open bite

Nirenblatt Extraction Case with Tip-Edge

Here is a teenager I treated with Tip-Edge braces and extraction of teeth including her compromised "steel crown". I treated her in 19 visits and closed the large molar space. We will keep her wisdom tooth #17 on that side. We achieved straight teeth, closure of her openbite and elimination of a lifetime of problems from a stainless steel crown.
