Orthodontics

Barsoum Dental Care is dedicated to helping you and your family maintain excellent oral and dental health. Our practice recently added a talented orthodontist to the staff, so we are now able to provide high-quality orthodontic care to residents of Chino, Chino Hills, Upland and neighboring communities. When it comes to braces, we are the professionals to trust.

Common Orthodontic Concerns

Our office provides braces, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign and other popular orthodontic products to our patients. Common issues that can be corrected by braces and orthodontia include:

1
Underbite

The lower teeth are positioned too far forward, or the upper teeth are positioned too far back.

2
Overbite

The upper front teeth stick out too far; this is also known as buck teeth.

3
Open Bite

When the back teeth bite together, there's a space between the biting surfaces of the side or front teeth.

4
Crossbite

The upper teeth fail to come down slightly in front of the lower teeth.

5
Crowding

The dental ridge is unable to accommodate all of the teeth.

6
Spacing

Teeth are missing, or there are large gaps between the teeth.

Short Term Clear Dental Braces

What are Short Term Clear Braces?

If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you're not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for Six Month Smiles™.  Some benefits of Six Month Smiles™ braces over traditional braces are:

  • Six Month Smiles™ braces are clear
  • Wires are usually tooth-colored and very small
  • Treatment times usually fall within 4-9 months
  • Discomfort is minimal as teeth are gently repositioned
  • Cost is usually less than traditional braces

FAQs

Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months?

A: The Six Month Smiles™ technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.

Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?

A: No! Dr. Maher Barsoum uses tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-colored as well. These are nothing like metal braces!

Q: How are Six Month Smiles™ more comfortable than regular braces?

A: Six Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Q: Do Six Month Smiles™ braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?

A: Six Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?

A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, Dr. Maher Barsoum can place abonded retainer for you. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.

Q: What's the catch?

A: There really is no catch. Call one of Dr. Maher Barsoum's offices, conveniently located in Chino and Upland Ca, and schedule an appointment for a free consultation.
