At What Age Is the Right Time To Get Braces?

Child Braces Marietta GA

One of the great things about having a good general dentist is the fact that they’re always keeping a close eye on your oral health.  When the time comes, they seek the assistance of dental specialists, like our orthodontist in Marietta, GA.

The First Orthodontic Consultation

Typically, around the age of 13 your dentist will refer your child for their first consultation. At this point all permanent teeth will be in (with the exception of the third molars), and if necessary, braces treatment can begin.

Early Intervention

While 13 is a great age to start braces, your child may require early intervention. Having a consultation done at around the age of seven is recommended. During this stage, your child’s permanent teeth begin to come in and we’ll be able to check for dental or facial developmental problems.

If issues are found, we can intervene by starting the first phase of orthodontics. Phase one ortho takes advantage of your child’s growing mouth and coaxes their anatomy to start developing on the right track.

Since phase one ortho is done while your child still has primary teeth, it will not correct issues for the long term. The youngster will need to go through a second phase of braces once all of their permanent teeth have come in. However, since braces will have already been done, phase two will not be as long a treatment as it typically is.

  • 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.
