Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children come in for an initial orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7 or at the first sign of orthodontic problems. This is often the age when the incisors and back teeth (or molars) have erupted and issues involving bite misalignments can be accurately assessed. While orthodontic treatment may not be necessary at the early age of 7, it allows Dr. Kincer to provide timely screening and anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment. Early orthodontics can ensure the most successful result while also reducing your time and expense in the long-term.

Benefits of Pediatric Orthodontics

By investing in orthodontics for your child, you are doing far more than just improving their smile appearance. Orthodontics correct bad bites due to tooth or jaw misalignment. Bad bites (malocclusions) influence the way your child smiles, speaks, chews and feels about his or her smile. It can even impact oral health when misalignment makes teeth cleaning a challenge.

In pediatric patients, Dr. Kincer can use orthodontics to guide jaw growth and influence the placement of permanent teeth. For many children, this involves using non-invasive methods to create more space in the upper and/or lower dental arch so that proper alignment can take place. Overall, choosing orthodontics for your child can simplify later treatment requirements, reduce future dental health problems and even prevent speech and chewing challenges in some cases.

Why Choose Interceptive Treatment?

Interceptive orthodontics refers to diagnosing and treating malocclusions as soon as they are detected. It is also known as phase I treatment. Through this approach, Dr. Kincer can often accomplish the following:

  • Create room for crowded teeth
  • Improve facial symmetry through influencing jaw growth
  • Lower the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Preserve space for teeth not yet erupted
  • Reduce the need for tooth extractions
  • Lessen treatment time in braces

  • 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 :)
