Early Evaluation for Young Children

If you are like most parents, you are probably wondering:

Why do kids in my child’s second grade class have braces?

When should my child see an orthodontist?

At Pitner Orthodontics, we recommend that all children be evaluated at age 7, but this does not mean your child will need braces in second grade or even in the future.  And you don’t need a referral by a dentist to take advantage of this free evaluation.

An early evaluation provides huge benefits to both you and your child.  Click to learn more!

Orthodontics for Adults

When many adults think of straightening their teeth, their first fear is that they will have to look like a teenager with a “metal mouth.” Fear no more!  At Pitner Orthodontics, whether you choose Invisalign, hidden lingual braces, or clear ceramic braces, we have an option that will keep you smiling confidently while you get your new smile.  And orthodontic treatment offers even more than just a beautiful confident smile. It gives you a more comfortable, better fitting bite so your teeth can last a lifetime.  Click to learn more.


Technology that Makes Treatment Faster and Easier

We offer all of the latest technology that makes your treatment faster and more comfortable.  From our scanners that make goopy, yucky molds a thing of the past to custom designed wires, if it makes your treatment better or faster, we have it.  Many other orthodontists have not made the investment in equipment and training that we have at Pitner Orthodontics.  We are the only practice in Columbia SC to offer Suresmile, a process that lets our doctors digitally design your smile, bite, and wires so you can get to a better result faster.  Only 10% of practices in the U.S. have made the investment in equipment and training to offer this unique benefit to their patients.  What would 4-6 fewer months in braces mean to you or your child?

A Beautiful Smile Changes How You Feel and How Others See You!  Don’t Miss Out!

At any time in life, orthodontic treatment can dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-esteem. With the technology we use to make braces more comfortable, invisible, and with shorter completion times, it is easier than ever to choose orthodontic treatment. Give you or your child the greatest, most powerful, most unique asset you’ll ever use each day of your life – your smile.
