You can trust that Dr. Kincer is highly trained in this specialty and can use surgical orthodontics to help you achieve the beautiful and healthy smile you deserve. We carefully evaluate each individual patient to determine the most appropriate orthodontic approach to achieve the best possible results. If surgical orthodontics is needed, you can trust our Marietta practice for a superior experience.

Surgical Correction for Jaw Misalignment

Surgical orthodontics typically involve a procedure to correct abnormal jaw placement. This allows the jaw bones to properly align and can consequently improve speech and chewing as well as the aesthetics of a patient’s smile. Surgical orthodontics is only used when the jaw bones have fully formed, which is generally after the age of 16 for females and 18 for males. It is important to realize that surgical orthodontic treatment is not a substitute for braces but is often used in conjunction with braces. Adults may be asked to wear braces before or after surgery.

At the office of Dr. William R. Kincer, we utilize the latest in dental imaging to develop your surgical orthodontics treatment plan and to explain the functional and cosmetic benefits of the procedure. Our advanced customized treatment planning can lessen treatment time, accelerate recovery and improve your overall results. Dr. Kincer also uses state-of-the-art materials made of strong, biocompatible titanium. Titanium plates and miniature screws can provide unrivaled stability, strength and predictability to your surgical orthodontics treatment.

Surgical orthodontics requires an experienced orthodontist who understands the intricacy of evolving jaw bone alignments. You can trust that Dr. Kincer is an excellent choice for your surgical orthodontics in Marietta. We offer superior, patient-centered care throughout your entire experience, from your initial consultation until your post-op recovery is complete.

  • 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.
