Adolescent Treatment

Adolescence is typically an optimal time to correct orthodontic issues. By the age of 12, most permanent teeth have erupted and are in their final position. Issues such as misalignment and bad bites are not only easily detected, but we can safely assume they will not correct themselves after this age. Therefore, Dr. Kincer commonly recommends braces for adolescents aged 12 to 18 years.

There are many reasons why adolescence can be an ideal period to fix malocclusion (bad bite) as well as crooked, gapped or crowded teeth. At this stage, children have a higher metabolic rate. This can be a significant advantage for a teen undergoing orthodontics, as it can decrease overall treatment time and improve patient comfort. In addition, the growth spurts that adolescents face can facilitate better tooth movement.

Orthodontics for Kids in Middle School and High School

If you have a child in middle or high school that needs orthodontic correction, we are here to help get them on board. Some children are only mildly affected by the thought of wearing braces, as they may have several peers in braces as well. We can make sure your adolescent child understands that modern braces are not as uncomfortable or intimidating as they were in the past. Modern braces come in a variety of styles and colors to choose from. Most importantly, wearing braces is a small sacrifice towards a confident and beautiful smile for the rest of their life.

For teens that need minor or moderate smile adjustments but are resisting metal brackets, Dr. Kincer offers advanced clear braces systems. Your child may be a candidate for clear ceramic braces or Invisalign Teen. We will take extra measures to ensure your older child or teenager feels comfortable and encouraged about their orthodontic treatment plan.

When choosing Dr. Kincer for adolescent orthodontics, you can expect superior, patient-centered care from beginning to end. Not only does our office offer relaxing, family-friendly amenities, but our young patients love interacting with Dr. Kincer during their visits. Creating a positive experience for your child is our top priority.

  • 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 :)
