Prevent Summertime Orthodontic Emergencies

As the weather starts to heat up and summer activities begin, it’s important to be proactive in preventing orthodontic emergencies. Especially as you send the kids off to camp or on vacation. As an orthodontist, Dr. Kincer has a few simple steps to help keep young smiles healthy and happy all summer long.

One of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent orthodontic emergencies is by wearing a sports mouthguard during any physical activities. Whether it’s a pick-up game of basketball with friends or an organized team sport, a mouthguard can help protect your braces and teeth from impact. The guard will help buffer your orthodontic appliances, protecting everything from your teeth to your lips and cheeks.

Another useful tool for preventing emergencies is keeping orthodontic wax on hand. Wax can be applied to brackets or wires that are causing irritation or discomfort, providing relief until you can make it into our office. We recommend keeping a small container of wax in your purse, backpack, or car to ensure you’re always prepared.

Lastly, we encourage all of our patients to come in for an exam before heading off on summer vacation or to summer camp. This will allow us to ensure that everything is properly adjusted and to address any potential issues before they become bigger problems. Additionally, we can offer helpful tips for maintaining good oral hygiene while away from home.

A little preparation can go a long way in keeping your smile healthy and safe this summer. As always, our orthodontist Dr. William R. Kincer is here to help – please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns!

  • 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.
