Prevent and Treat Gum Disease with Periodontal Care

If you or a member of your family experience diseases or disorders with your gums or the bones that support your teeth, one of our periodontal residents can deliver the care you need at The Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University.

The Periodontal residents specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating diseases and disorders of the soft and hard tissues that surround and support the teeth. They also specialize in the esthetic and comprehensive treatment, as well as placement and repair of dental implants. All residents receiving training in the program are closely supervised by highly trained, licensed periodontists who guide them through the process.

Your care will be delivered in a dedicated clinic on the first floor of The Dental College of Georgia, a world-class facility that offers easy access to every dental specialty under one roof should a referral be needed.

The team makes each visit as pleasant as possible by using various types of medications and techniques to manage anxiety and control pain. These include light to moderate sedation and general anesthesia options.


Periodontic Services

The Periodontics Residency offers the following services:

  • Non-surgical treatments for gum disease, including root planing and scaling in which the infected surface of the root is cleaned and possibly treated with antimicrobials
  • Dental implants to replace one or more teeth and prevent the need for dentures or bridges
  • Soft tissue grafts to cover the exposed roots of teeth, or augment edentulous areas to enhance esthetic outcome around teeth and implants.
  • Surgical periodontal therapy to reverse bone loss and control inflammatory process around teeth and implants
  • Regenerative procedures to generate bone growth around teeth and at edentulous sites for future implant placement
  • Aesthetic crown lengthening to reshape excess gum tissue, expose more of the teeth, and repair “gummy smiles” for a more attractive appearance
  • Access to all dental, medical, and specialty resources of Augusta University, the state’s largest training facility for healthcare professionals


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

Don’t let periodontal problems threaten your teeth and smile. To schedule an appointment for an evaluation, call to speak to a scheduling coordinator.
