Orthodontics

Vital Smiles Georgia is proud to provide orthodontics services at our office in Albany. We believe every child deserves a beautiful, straight smile, regardless of background or income.

Because children are still growing, this is the best time to begin orthodontic care. Currently, we offer only traditional metal braces.

If your child qualifies, Medicaid may cover the expense.   If you have lost your dental coverage, or your claim is denied, we have other payment options. We will be happy to discuss your insurance coverage or any other financial arrangements.  Please call 229-432-9555 for more information.

Cleaning

bottom-cleaning

We keep your child’s teeth sparkling clean with the help of our electric tooth brush (a motorized prophy brush). We then apply bubbles (fluoride) to keep his or her teeth strong.

Filling Cavities

We use fun tools like Mr. Bumpy (our slow speed drill) to remove decay. Your child will then receive a silver star (filling), and the tooth will be good as new.

Sealants

Sealants are thin, protective coatings used to prevent tooth decay. They fill in the tiny grooves of the tooth surface so that brushing becomes more effective.

X-Rays

We use a tooth camera (X-ray machine) to take pictures of your child’s teeth. This gives us a better look at his or her smile. Our Digital X-rays are state of the art, limiting radiation exposure.
