Orthodontics: Beyond Aesthetics

Marietta GA Orthodontist

It’s no secret that beautiful, straight teeth contribute to a nicer smile while also enhancing one’s confidence and self-esteem. Yet, the benefits of orthodontic treatment extend beyond aesthetics, alleviating a number of health conditions and problems associated with the teeth and jaw.

As reported by Colgate, individuals with the following are considered candidates for orthodontic treatment:

  • Overbite: Often called “buck teeth,” an overbite occurs when the upper front teeth are positioned too far forward over the lower teeth.
  • Underbite: Sometimes compared to a “bulldog” appearance, an underbite occurs when the lower teeth are positioned too far forward, or the upper teeth are too far back.
  • Crossbite: A crossbite develops when the upper teeth do not come down slightly over the lower teeth when an individual bites down.
  • Open Bite: An open bite describes the space between the biting surfaces of the front or side teeth when the back teeth bite together.
  • Misplaced Midline: This is a condition in which the center of the upper front teeth do not properly line up with the center of the lower front teeth when an individual bites down.
  • Spacing: Spacing refers to any gap or space, whether due to missing teeth or teeth that are improperly sized that do not “fill up” the mouth.
  • Crowding: When there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate, crowding occurs.

With the above-mentioned orthodontic concerns in mind, it’s important to draw connections between these and other oral and dental health concerns. For instance, when teeth are malpositioned, they are naturally more difficult to clean. Thus, individuals may experience tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease and perhaps tooth loss. In turn, when there are problems associated with an individual’s bite and jaw alignment, they are likely to suffer from chewing difficulties, as well as headaches, facial pain and neck pain from excessive strain placed on teeth and gum tissues.

  • 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.
