“Am I Too Old for Braces?”

Orthodontics Marietta GA

You may be too old to order off the kids menu, or even too old to enter your favorite amusement park with “kids admission” pricing, but trust our Marietta orthodontist when we say you’re never too old for braces.

Orthodontics – Moving Teeth At Any Age

Although childhood may be the most common time to get braces, as long as your teeth, gums, and bone are healthy, there is no age limit to moving teeth.

Other Benefits of Getting Braces Later In Life

Braces can do more than just improve the appearance of your smile.

If you’ve had a tooth pulled in the past, you may have noticed shifting of your other teeth. Perhaps you’ve observed your teeth leaning and gaps between the others are getting wider. Any mouth with gaps or crowding is hard to clean, and gum health is often impaired. Braces can properly align your teeth, making your oral hygiene routine more efficient so that your mouth is noticeably healthier.

TMJ symptoms like jaw pain, clenching, grinding, and headaches can all be due to an improper bite alignment. A nightguard may help prevent these symptoms, but orthodontic therapy is a permanent solution to the cause of the problem.

Alternative To Traditional Braces

If you don’t want to go around with traditional braces, then consider alternatives such as clear or tooth colored braces, lingual braces, or even clear aligner therapy.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
