Common Orthodontic Emergencies

Mouth Pain Marietta GA

If you’re wearing braces, you’re not immune to orthodontic emergencies. Since our Marietta community is experiencing the “social distancing” effects of the COVID-19 virus, knowing what to do during an orthodontic emergency can save you from making an unnecessary trip into town.

Broken Bracket
One of the most common orthodontic “emergencies” is biting down on something wrong and accidentally popping off a bracket. Or for some reason, the bonding agent comes loose, and the bracket is simply suspended over the tooth.

Although we usually want to replace your bracket at your earliest convenience, it’s ok to wait given the circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. We’ll see you once our office is providing routine services again!

Wire Poking Out
Have a trusted adult use a pair of nail clippers to snip off the piece of wire that’s poking into your gums or cheek. If it’s small, you can use a pencil eraser to gently bend the wire so that it’s not irritating your mouth. Or the fastest solution is to simply cover it with orthodontic wax until our Marietta orthodontist can see you in person!

Broken Retainer
This one might be a repair we can provide without having to see you in person. Call our office to arrange dropping off your appliance to have it repaired or replaced (if a digital impression is on file).

  • 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 :)

  • After having my braces off for 12 years. I go in today to see my little sister get her braces off, and Dr. Kincer readjusted my Old retainers to fit again!! He is a great orthodontist!

  • 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.
