New Year’s Resolutions for Orthodontic Patients

As we enter into the holiday season and get closer to the new year, things can get busy and schedules fill up more quickly. Your orthodontic care may be pushed aside and not get the attention it deserves. Why not change that and make a few orthodontic resolutions for the new year that both you and your smile can benefit from?

Stay Up-to-Date on Your Appointments

Depending on what treatment you’re currently undergoing, you’ll need to see an orthodontist at different intervals. Usually if things come up, orthodontic appointments tend to get rescheduled in favor of something more exciting. Regular appointments, however, help keep your teeth moving along as prescribed. Missing regular appointments can prolong your treatment, keeping you in your braces for a longer timeframe. This year, resolve to keep your regular appointments to stay on track.

Wear Your Aligners as Directed

Wearing removable orthodontic aligners may seem like an easy and simple thing to do. The truth is it can be tricky, especially when away on vacation or if you’re at school. It’s easy to take them out and forget to put them back in after eating or brushing. Aligners only work if you’re wearing them, so this year resolve to wear them like a pro!

Brush Regularly and Floss Daily

Brushing your teeth with or without braces is important, but it becomes especially important when you wear braces. You should be brushing 2-3 times a day and flossing at least once a day. This will ensure the health of your teeth and gums after the braces are removed. No more skipping, resolve to brush and floss better every day.

  • 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.
