Let’s figure out which type of braces suits your smile goals while fitting your lifestyle.

No matter whether a child, teen or adult walks through our doors, if someone is looking to fix their crowded and misaligned smiles then our bracesdental team is here to help. With our Frederick and Urbana MD, dentists, Dr. Jared Lawson, Dr. EJ Stringer and Dr. Amadeus Lopez; periodontist Dr. Ashley Seals, oral surgeon, Dr. Brian Chang; endodontist, Dr. Pratik Patel; and orthodontist, Dr. Steven Tigani, on your side, we are sure to find the right orthodontic treatment to fit you.

Traditional Braces

These are the type of braces that typically come to mind when thinking of orthodontic treatment; however, they have gotten a bit of a makeover over the decades. Metal braces have become sleeker and the wires have become thinner, making the braces less bulky and cumbersome. Traditional braces can also be made from tooth-colored materials to make them more discreet.

Traditional braces are great for patients of all ages, especially for those dealing with complex or complicated tooth movements or for cases in which the jaws need to be moved or realigned.


Most teens and adults balk at the idea of needing braces; however, having a straight smile will not only improve your appearance but can also reduce your risk for cavities, gum disease or dental damage (e.g. cracks or fractures). If the idea of wearing traditional braces has you running for the hills, then it’s time you asked our Frederick dentists about Invisalign.

This clear, almost invisible system uses flexible, plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit over your teeth. They look similar to mouthguards or whitening trays, but each aligner is designed to gradually shift teeth into the proper position. Aligners are also completely removable, so you can take them out before mealtimes or before brushing and flossing.

Tigani Aligners

Of course, since you have our expert dental team right here to help get you the smile you want you may decide to use our very own Tigani Orthodontic Aligners (TOA) to achieve the perfect results. This system is not Invisalign; however, it does still use a set of removable, clear aligners, which are worn for up to 3 weeks before replacing them with the next set in your treatment plan. Tigani aligners can often be a less expensive option than Invisalign.

Aligners should be worn for at least 20 hours a day, but you may choose to remove them before a special occasion, important date or work presentation. This is a great option for those in the professional world who don’t want everyone to know that they have braces.

If you are ready to get one step closer to the smile you want then it’s time to turn to the orthodontic experts at Pearlfection Dentistry in Frederick and Urbana MD. Call our office today to schedule a consultation.

With the recent addition of a board-certified periodontist, Dr Ashley Seals, Orthodontist Stephen Tigani, Board Certified Oral Surgeon, Brian Chang, and Endodontist, Pratik Patel, as well as cosmetic and restorative dentists, Dr Stringer and Lawson, PearlFection Dentistry has become a unique practice in the state of Maryland. Not only can PearlFection Dentistry provide basic dental services like cleanings, emergency dental care, pediatric and kid friendly dental care, fillings and crowns and bridges, but they can also provide specialty like dental implants, root canals, and surgical wisdom teeth extractions.

Most dentists can provide basic services but often those dentists need to send complicated cases out to a specialist. At PearlFection we are able to keep all these procedures under one roof, with our general dentists acting as quarterback and ensuring excellent start to finish attention to our patients need. Dr Stringer said “We have found that we can provide better care and better follow-up, when all our doctors can talk face to face about optimal patient care and include the patient in those discussion. Sometimes our patients might see four different doctors in one day. When a patient needs to engage multiple doctors for different procedures, I can manage it much better when all work, all the records and data is on site” “ We didn’t like it, when in the past, we would send an extraction or implant out to another oral surgeon or periodontist and the patient would come back with work being done that was “out of order”. “It resulted in patients not having treatment done in a logical order. For example, we might want to have a root canal first, to control infection, and then fillings done, then an implant. But if we told the patient to go get consultations, they might come back with an implant first. That is not an ideal chronology for maximum effective dental care. Now we can better control how and when dental procedures are done.”

Comprehensive dentistry, means Pearlfection Dentistry can see emergency cases quickly and get those patients back in quickly for the proper work or even have necessary work done the same day. Our doctors do so many of the same procedures, day after day, that they get really good at their specialty. Our oral surgeon does extractions and dental implants all day, every day. Our endodontist does root canals all day every day. Our Orthodontist does orthodontics braces or clear aligners all day every day and our Periodontist does deep cleanings and scaling and root plaining or implants all day every day. And our general doctors do fillings, crowns, bridges and see emergency dental cases all day every day. Our hygienist do cleanings all day every day. Our team gets great at their specialty and our patients benefit from the best dentistry in the State of Maryland and the best dentistry in Frederick and Urbana.
