The PRO Smile

With a PRO Smile, we focus on achieving broad arches, even gums, and even teeth, resulting in a harmonious and balanced smile that enhances your overall facial aesthetics.

Broad arches are a hallmark of The PRO Smile. We create a broader and more symmetrical smile by carefully aligning your teeth and optimizing their positioning within the arch. This not only makes you appear youthful, but looks beautiful as you age!

Part of your treatment will include creating the ideal sized teeth and reducing gaps between teeth. We will not only focus on the teeth but the gums and the lips as well, with ideal contouring and following the lip curvature. This will create a smile that is not only beautiful but also allows for improved oral hygiene and easier maintenance. Discover the power of The PRO Smile and unlock your full smile potential with us.


Experience the freedom of a clear and discreet orthodontic treatment with Invisalign at Potomac River Orthodontics. Invisalign utilizes a series of custom-made, clear aligners to gradually and comfortably straighten your teeth without needing traditional metal braces.

The virtually invisible aligners are comfortable to wear and offer a discreet way to achieve the smile you've always wanted. Whether you have crowded teeth, gaps, or misalignments, Invisalign can help you achieve a confident smile with minimal disruptions to your daily life.


At Potomac River Orthodontics, we have braces to match your lifestyle and smile goals.

Metal braces are a trusted and effective orthodontic treatment option for achieving a beautiful smile. Composed of high-quality stainless steel, they consist of brackets attached to the teeth and connected by a thin archwire. Through gentle pressure, metal braces gradually align and straighten the teeth, correcting various orthodontic issues.

With advancements in technology, metal braces are now more comfortable and streamlined, offering an efficient and reliable solution for individuals seeking a straighter smile.

Self-ligating braces are an advanced orthodontic option designed for efficiency and comfort. These braces feature special brackets that eliminate the need for elastic or metal ligatures. Instead, they use built-in clips or doors to secure the archwire, allowing for smoother and more controlled tooth movement.

With self-ligating braces, fewer adjustments are required, resulting in fewer orthodontic visits and shorter overall treatment times. The reduced friction between the braces and the archwire also contributes to a more comfortable experience.

Lingual braces provide a discreet and virtually invisible orthodontic solution. Unlike traditional braces, lingual braces are placed on the back surface of the teeth, making them hidden from view.

At Potomac River Orthodontics, our skilled orthodontic team will guide you through the process of lingual braces, ensuring a comfortable and personalized treatment experience. Embrace the benefits of invisible orthodontics and enjoy the journey to your desired smile with lingual braces.


Retainers play a crucial role in maintaining the results of orthodontic treatment. Wearing a retainer after braces or clear aligner therapy helps keep your teeth in their newly aligned positions.

Retainers come in different types, including removable retainers and fixed retainers. Dr. Owais will recommend the most suitable type of retainer based on your specific needs. With regular retainer use, you will protect the investment you've made in your smile and enjoy the long-term benefits of your orthodontic treatment.

Mouthguards are devices designed to protect your teeth, gums, and jaw by acting as a cushion, absorbing the impact of blows or frequent grinding that could result in dental injury. At PRO, we offer custom mouthguards that are designed to fit securely and comfortably.

Airway Orthodontics

Orthodontics is more than just straight teeth and a beautiful smile. Certain habits and jaw deformities can lead to Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB). Specialized orthodontic treatments can be used to expand airways and treat these disorders.

At Potomac River Orthodontics, we look for the causes, such as obstructions and lack of space for the tongue, and present solutions, such as removal of obstructive tissues and growth-focused orthodontics. We understand the role sleep plays in a healthy quality of life, and we are focused on finding a solution that fits you. While ages 7-8 are the best time to begin treatment, we recommend coming to see us as soon as you notice an issue!


At Potomac River Orthodontics, we are dedicated to utilizing the latest technology to provide our patients with the most advanced orthodontic treatments available.

Whether it's soft tissue procedures to address gum issues, such as reshaping or contouring, or other applications, like exposing impacted teeth or accelerating tooth movement, laser therapy offers a gentler and more comfortable experience.

By incorporating laser technology into our orthodontic treatments, we aim to provide our patients with exceptional results, improved comfort, and faster recovery times.

At Potomac River Orthodontics, we utilize the convenience and effectiveness of in house 3D scanners, a 3D CBCT, and 3D printer technology in our orthodontic treatments. These advanced technologies allow us the utmost customization in our patient experience.

By incorporating 3D technology, we can evaluate bone structure, airway and occlusion to determine a proper diagnosis for each individual patient. With 3D printers, the world of orthodontics is at our fingertips and anything we need can be built at the click of a button! This all translates to a convenient, efficient, and satisfying final result for our patients.
