Dr. Melanie Sue Parker DDS, MS
Dr. Melanie Parker practices Orthodontics in San Diego, CA. Comprehensive orthodontic treatment includes metal wires that are inserted into orthodontic brackets, which can be made from stainless steel or a more aesthetic ceramic material. The wires interact with the brackets to move teeth into desired positions. Being advanced in the field, Dr. Parker may also use Invisalign or other aligner trays that have been designed to align a patients? smile. As an orthodontist, Dr. Parker must recognize various characteristics of a malocclusion or dentofacial deformity, define the nature of the problem, including the etiology if possible, and design a treatment strategy based on the specific needs and desires of the patient.
