Orthodontics to Straighten Your Teeth and Enhance Your Smile

If you or someone in your family has poorly positioned teeth or related facial or jaw problems, the Orthodontics Residency Program at The Dental College of Georgia can work with you to create a straighter, healthier, and more attractive smile.

The state-of-the-art care is delivered by orthodontic residents supervised by a team of board-certified orthodontic faculty. These caring professionals deliver personalized care in a warm, reassuring environment, whether you need braces, retainers, or more advanced orthodontic procedures. Together, they have the skills, experience, and technology to address virtually any orthodontic problem in infants, children, adolescents, and adults.

One of the most modern orthodontic clinics in the nation and a regional referral center, the clinic is located on the second floor of The Dental College of Georgia. This world-class facility offers every dental specialty under one roof in a bright, spacious setting. There is ample out-front parking and easy access to all dental, medical, and specialty resources of Augusta University, the state’s largest training facility for healthcare professionals.

The Orthodontics Residency offers a patient-centered approach to the following services:

  • Traditional and tooth-colored braces and removable clear retainers
  • Space management of the developing permanent teeth and interceptive orthodontic treatment for children as needed
  • Retainers and other retention devices
  • Orthodontic appliances to increase the width of the jaw (jaw expansion)
  • Orthognathic care to treat and correct abnormalities of the facial and jaw bones
  • Diagnosis and treatment of jaw joint disorders (TMJ) and facial pain problems
  • Limited orthodontic care for patients who do not need full-mouth orthodontics
  • Care for cleft lip and palate patients, in babies and for all ages
  • Infant orthopedic appliance (nasal alveolar molding)
  • Advanced imaging, including the area’s first limited field cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT). CBCT reduces radiation exposure yet provides clear, crisp images of a targeted area of the jaws and teeth.
  • The area’s only 3dMD facial imaging used in diagnosing and planning care for facial, aesthetic, and functional problems
  • Laser treatments for minor alterations of gum tissue before applying braces to teeth that are not fully erupted
  • Temporary anchorage devices placed in the jaw bone to help in the positioning of teeth
  • Interdisciplinary care in which orthodontists work with other dental or medical specialists to deliver comprehensive care for complex problems
  • Utilization of clear aligners

We accept most dental insurance plans and credit cards as well as checks and cash.
