This clear orthodontic system could give you the straight, beautiful smile you want.
Are you an adult who is tired of having gaps between teeth or crowding? Want to fix misalignments without having to wear metal brackets and wires? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Our Frederick, MD, team of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentists, Dr. Jared Lawson, Dr. EJ Stringer, and Dr. Amadeus Lopez, as well as periodontist Dr. Ashley Seals, oral surgeon Dr. Brian Chang, endodontist Dr. Pratik Patel, and orthodontist Dr. Stephen Tigani are here to tell you how Tigani aligners could give you the perfect smile.
When most people think about a nearly invisible orthodontic treatment they often think about Invisalign; however, this isn’t the only effective system out there that uses clear, plastic aligners rather than brackets and wires to get a straighter smile. Tigani aligners are not Invisalign; however, it works similarly to provide you with an easy, discreet treatment to fix your smile.
When you come in for Tigani Orthodontic Aligners (TOA) the first thing we will do is examine your smile and run x-rays to make sure that everything is healthy and that the dental issues you want to treat can be corrected with our transparent aligner system. If we deem you an ideal candidate for treatment the next step is to create your detailed, customized treatment plan. We will need to map out which teeth will need to move over the course of your treatment (as well as how much they need to move) in order to give you the optimal results.
From there, we will take impressions of your teeth and send these to an outside dental laboratory where they will get to work creating a unique and custom set of aligners. While most patients will have multiple aligners in their treatment plan, if you are only dealing with very minor adjustments, you may only need one or two aligners to get the look you want.
The best part is that our TOA system allows older teens and adults to get a perfectly aligned smile without having to wear metal braces. We know that school and working life are tough enough without having to add the embarrassment of metal braces into the mix. Plus, Tigani aligners are often less expensive than Invisalign brand aligners, which means that you can get the results you want without breaking the bank.
In Frederick, MD, just 45 minutes outside Washington DC, you could get a discreet orthodontic treatment that could finally give you a smile you can’t wait to show off. Find out if Tigani aligners are right for you. Call Pearlfection Dentistry today.
