The palatal expander is an orthodontic appliance that widens your upper jaw by putting gentle pressure on your upper molars each time an adjustment is made. Palatal expanders are frequently used to correct dental crossbites, underbites, and resolve dental crowding. Dr. Parsons will design a custom palatal expander appliance and instruct you about when and how to adjust your expander. When you achieve the desired expansion, you will wear the appliance for several months to solidify the expansion and to prevent regression.
While attending an appt with my son recently (who was being seen for an adjustment), I asked Dr. Parsons if she would look at an issue that I had with a permanent retainer. I explained to her that the orthodontist that put it in was located in Maryland and that I was unable to get there to have it looked at. Dr. Parsons took care of me (even though I was a walk in/had no appt). And after she was done, when I asked her what the charge was, she told me not to worry about it! Her generosity of time and service saved me time, money, and travel. I have been very pleased with the service my son has received from her (and her staff) as well!
