How COVID-19 Affects Your Orthodontic Experience

Dental Care Marietta GA

For people that wear braces or clear aligners, the fact that dentist and orthodontist’s offices have closed during COVID-19 has left many people worried about how it will impact their overall treatment.

Although it’s important to maintain routine visits to ensure proper tooth movement, most appointments are already about 6-8 weeks apart. Being that pandemic closures have delayed 1-2 visits for most of our patients, the side-effects should be kept to a minimum.

No, it’s not ideal, but the good news is that there — in theory — you probably won’t notice in the long run.

If you or your child was scheduled to get your braces off soon, don’t worry. As soon as we confirm that everything looks as it ought to, you can proceed with having your appliances taken off and getting fitted for a retainer. Otherwise, continue wearing your appliances as advised.

In a worst case scenario, our average orthodontic patient will probably spend another month or two in braces than they had originally planned. In the grand scheme of things, it isn’t all that bad! Your treatment plan should pick up right where it left off. If not, we’ll discuss any specific needs during your first trip back to our office.

As we start re-opening for appointments, we’ll be making social distancing changes to minimize interactions and protect your family. Our practice is carefully monitoring all CDC and ADA guidelines as the pertain to re-opening dental offices and providing patient care. We will be in touch with you to arrange a time for your appointment as soon as possible, ensuring that all adequate measures are taken. Your health is essential to us!

  • 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.
