Dr. Norbert Krämer

Dr. Norbert Krämer achieved his degree “MSc Orthodontics” at the Danube University of Krems / Austria in 2005.
His scale of treatment covers the early treatment of children in the early mixed dentition as well as in the late mixed and permanent dentition.
The orthodontic treatment of adults (Clear Braces) can be done with transparent aligners. Orthocaps aligners – –  discreetly correct the position of the teeth, working almost imperceptibly over time until the final result is achieved.  Malpositioned teeth are gently adjusted.
The orthodontic treatment may be carried out -if necessary- in collaboration with the other Dentists/Maxillo-facial Surgeon / Implantologist on our team. In this way an optimum individual result of the patients treatment can be achieved.
Appointments for evening sessions are available with Norbert.
