Why You Should Seek Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment is about more than just cosmetics – it’s about improving your quality of life and giving you the oral health boost you deserve. From correcting bad bites to taking advantage of modern treatment options, there are so many reasons our patients in Salisbury and Berlin choose to get braces or clear aligners. 

You’ll Be Healthier Overall

Crooked, crowded, or spaced-out smiles are not just cosmetic issues – they can cause many problems for patients of all ages. The nooks and crannies created by crowded teeth are major attractions for cavities and plaque. Left untreated, these conditions could cause gum disease or even tooth decay. 

Similarly, bad bites can be uncomfortable for many reasons. Having an overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite could lead to speaking, eating, and digestive issues. They may also cause jaw pain that may not go away without the help of an orthodontist. 

Fortunately, orthodontic treatment can realign your teeth and bite pattern. By closing gaps and straightening crooked teeth, braces or clear aligners can improve your oral health by making brushing and flossing easier. Correcting your bite pattern will also reduce jaw pain and digestive problems, leaving you happier and healthier than ever. 

You’ll Feel More Confident

Many patients struggle with self-esteem issues before starting treatment at Tilghman Orthodontics. Crooked teeth or gummy smiles are often the reasons patients hide their grins, but orthodontic treatment can help! By straightening your smile, you’ll feel more confident when you look in the mirror, and you won’t have to cover your mouth when you laugh – instead, you can share your happiness with the world!

You’ll Get Access to Modern Treatment Options

Gone are the days of goopy impressions and headgear. Modern orthodontics is more advanced and practical than it has ever been, and there’s never been a better or more comfortable time to start treatment. With options for every smile and age, modern orthodontics is changing the game. Here’s how.

Traditional Metal Braces

As one of our most popular treatment plans, traditional metal braces are the most versatile options we offer. Using a system of brackets and wires, Dr. Tilghman and Dr. Schwartz gently guide the teeth in line over time. Modern metal braces are much smaller and more discreet than they have been in the past, and they work best for patients with mild to severe orthodontic concerns. 

Ceramic Braces

Also known as tooth-colored braces, this alternative to traditional treatment makes metal braces even more discreet. Each bracket is made of white ceramic to color-match your own teeth, so it looks like you don’t have brackets at all. They work the same as traditional metal braces, but they’re much less noticeable if cared for correctly. 

Clear Aligners

As one of the leading appliances on the orthodontic market, clear aligners are an excellent option for patients seeking both comfort and discretion. This series of custom clear aligner trays gradually shift your smile in line as you move from one tray to the next. We offer two clear aligner options to match every need: Smiles Correct and Invisalign. Ask our team which is right for you!

You’ll Join Millions of Adults Seeking Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids and teens! More adults than ever are turning to Tilghman Orthodontics to get the smile of their dreams. In fact, the American Association of Orthodontists reports that one in every four braces or clear aligner patient is over the age of 18!

Modern treatment is more practical and advanced than it has been, which means older patients interested in straightening their teeth have fewer obstacles to starting care. Most options are more discreet than ever or even invisible, making it possible for adults to find the confidence of a straight smile without attracting notice. 

You’ll Give Your Child a Head Start on a Straight Smile

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, every child should visit their orthodontist by the time they turn 7 years old. At this age, children’s teeth are still developing, making it the perfect time to begin tracking for future orthodontic issues. Catching these problems early gives Dr. Tilghman and Dr. Schwartz a better understanding of how to treat them before they develop into more serious issues.
