Many people are familiar with Invisalign clear aligners as an orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is used to straighten the teeth to provide a beautiful new smile, much like braces, but without the metal — and with many added benefits, such as a discreet appearance and removable trays. But are there any alternatives to Invisalign that also provide the benefits of a nearly invisible appearance, the convenience of removable trays, and the results of a perfectly aligned smile? Some patients have turned to DIY clear aligners in efforts to improve their smile for a fraction of the cost.

Here at Tilghman Orthodontics, we are proud to offer an effective alternative to each of these treatments in Salisbury and Berlin: Smiles Correct.

What is Smiles Correct?

Smiles Correct is a professional, affordable alternative to Invisalign, braces, and DIY clear aligners that provides real results for patients desiring to perfect their smiles. This treatment is for patients who may have less severe orthodontic cases than others, such as minor crowding or spacing issues. Smiles Correct is also a perfect treatment for orthodontic patients who have neglected to wear their retainers and therefore have experienced minor issues with their teeth shifting into different positions.
