How orthodontic treatment from Frederick, Maryland can help your smile
Modern orthodontic treatment can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Today’s orthodontics offers many comfortable options to treat many different issues with tooth and jaw alignment. Pearlfection Dentistry in Frederick, Maryland and Urbana, Maryland has an entire team of dentists and specialists to ensure great treatment and a wonderful outcome.
General, cosmetic and restorative dentists Dr. Jared Lawson, Dr. EJ Stringer and Dr. Amadeus Lopez, oral surgeon Dr. Brian Chang, endodontist Dr. Pratik Patel, and orthodontist Dr. Stephen Tigani combine their talents to make sure you are well taken care of.
So, how do you know if you will benefit from orthodontic treatment? The truth is there are many jaw and tooth alignment problems which can be effectively treated by modern orthodontics including:
- Overbite; your upper jaw protrudes in front of your lower jaw
- Underbite; your lower jaw protrudes in front of your upper jaw
- Crossbite; your jaws cross each other when you bite
- Open bite; your front teeth don’t close when you bite
- Mild to severely crowded or rotated teeth
- Teeth erupting in the wrong position or not erupting at all
- Gaps and spaces between teeth or overlapping teeth
If you have jaw alignment problems and don’t have corrective orthodontic treatment, it can lead to excessive wear on your teeth, grinding and clenching, TMJ pain, headaches, and increased risk of needing root canals and restorative treatment.
If you have tooth alignment problems and don’t have corrective orthodontic treatment, it can lead to increased plaque buildup, hygiene difficulties, dental decay, and wear-and-tear on your teeth, chewing difficulties, and increased risk of needing restorative treatment.
Let’s face it, straight teeth are much easier to clean. Flossing becomes a breeze because you don’t have tight, crowded teeth to fit the floss in between. Clean teeth means less risk of painful dental issues. Proper jaw alignment eases the stress on your jaw joints, face and head, preventing ligament, muscle and joint pain.
The dentists and specialists at Pearlfection Dentistry in Frederick, Maryland offer a full range of orthodontic treatments including conventional braces, ceramic braces, and clear aligners.

Dr Stephen Tigani joined PearlFection Dentistry in Frederick Maryland in 2016. To prepare for the addition of Dr Tigani, the decision was made to invest in the most modern orthodontic equipment on the market, including a digital panoramic x-ray system and celphalometic x-ray system, life support equipment, sedationdentistry equipment, upgraded hand pieces, and digital x-rays, as well as expand our capabilities by offering both Invisalign and Tigani Clear Braces. The practice purchased the advanced equipment, to ensure we had the best equipment on the market and the best doctors to operate it, so we can provide the best and safest dental care in the State of Maryland. These new pieces of equipment and technology allow the doctors and their assistants to perform advanced dentistry, including surgery and orthodontic treatment with the most modern dental equipment and therefore give the patient the greatest prognosis of a good clinical outcome. With general dentist, orthodontists, oral surgeons and endodontists on staff, PearlFection has the ability to treat almost all dental conditions in-house without having to send difficult or emergency cases out.
Dr Tigani was promoted to lead orthodontist with a team of 6 orthodontic assistants and staff reporting to him at two different offices, one office in Urbana Maryland and the Second in Frederick Maryland. The expanded operation allows Dr Tigani to serve patients in his existing offices of Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland, making Dr Tigani one of the most geographically diversified orthodontists in the region. His low cost, high quality approach to orthodontics has made him and his practices extremely successful over his 30 plus year career. Dr Tigani was also the head of the Washington, DC American Dental Society, an extremely prestigious title.
We asked Dr EJ Stringer why the decision was made to expand Dr Tigani’ s operations inside PearlFection Dentistry in Frederick and Urbana. She said “The decision to bring on Dr Tigani was driven by our patients’ request to have more procedures done at the practice, especially orthodontics for both adults and children. In the past, we sent out most of our child orthodontic work, as well as adult orthodontic work, we also didn’t have a great alterative to Invisalign, which can be pricey. We sent this work out to orthodontists not affiliated with our practice and across town, and sometimes didn’t get the results we wanted. Our patients never really liked having to do that and they just felt more comfortable staying at our practice on Thomas Johnson Drive and in Urbana on Urbana Pike. Now instead of going out to have these procedures done, we’ll have them all performed in house. By bringing on Dr Tigani, we are able to have a specialist in the practice who is truly one of the best orthodontists in the state and region. Our practice and our patients are very lucky to have him. We asked the General Manager of PearlFection Dentistry, Stewart Stringer, why he thinks Dr Tigani is such a good fit for PearlFection in Frederick Maryland and Urbana, Stewart said “Dr Tigani is a rare breed. He greets each of his patients personally in the waiting room and shakes the kid’s hands and geniality makes people feel special. He is the most competent orthodontist I have ever met, and he’s a genuinely nice guy. The kind of guy you can sit down and talk to or have a beer with. That is what PearlFection is all about. We strive to be the number one dental practice in the region with the best doctors and best team around. With doctors like Dr Tigani, how can we not be?”
