Berlin, MD Braces

Braces with Tilghman Orthodontics are an excellent choice for correcting oral issues ranging from mild to severe. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments, braces may slightly reduce overall treatment time.

Braces don't require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning that braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option at our office Berlin, MD.

Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They're made of metal or ceramic brackets affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.

These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with Dr. Tilghman.

Braces & Invisalign: Find the Treatment for You

Dr. Tilghman has over 30 years of experience creating individual treatment plans to give you results that will last a lifetime. We’re proud to serve Salisbury, Berlin, Ocean City, and other areas throughout the Eastern Shore.

Using these as the basis for braces or Invisalign treatment results in a beautifully aligned smile that's just right for you. Schedule your free consultation with Tilghman Orthodontics to learn more about orthodontic treatment.

Berlin, MD Invisalign

Invisalign is incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists and is the top alternative to braces in Berlin. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth gradually.

Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want, you'll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks as directed by your orthodontist, Dr. Tilghman.

The Invisalign system can only work if you follow the recommended guidelines. You'll wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. You must wear the aligners according to your treatment plan to ensure the results and add time to the orthodontic process.

Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Tilghman at Tilghman Orthodontics in our Berlin office will help us determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
