Are you looking for a dental practice that will provide either you or your child with expert orthodontic services? If so, you should bring your child in to our dental practice, Michael Barmé DDS. At our Norwalk CA orthodontist office, you and your child can receive orthodontic care as well as complete dental care from our top-notch dentist, Dr. Michael Barmé.
At our dental office, we are very happy to offer the services of our Norwalk CA orthodontist. If you or your child has a bite which needs to be corrected, or you simply want to have it corrected for a cosmetic improvement, our orthodontist can help you. Our orthodontist will help to create a smile for you or your family member that is not only attractive but that is long-lasting and healthful. Sometimes teeth are simply too crowded. This in itself can be a serious dental problem. When teeth are too crowded, it is more difficult for the patient to keep his or her mouth clean. This can contribute to dental problems, including gum disease later in life. Also, upper and lower jaws may be out of alignment. If this is the case with your child, our orthodontist will be able to provide your child with interceptive orthodontic care. This treatment will help your child’s jaw start to develop correctly, since children’s jaws can have their growth pattern easily affected. Sometimes an arch expander is helpful in this case. Our orthodontist may use braces or retainers of some type to solve your child’s orthodontic problems. When our orthodontist uses braces, wires and brackets are used to put pressure on a tooth so that it moves into the desired direction. Generally, orthodontic treatment can last from one to three years depending on the patient’s age and severity of their bite problem.
