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.
Parsons Orthodontics is absolutely wonderful! My daughter was apprehensive about getting braces and Dr Parsons and her staff made her feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire process. Carmen always makes us feel so welcome with her amazing customer service and Liz and Stephanie demonstrate both knowledge and professionalism. Dr Parsons is probably the most patient and kind provider I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. I do not hesitate in recommending her practice to anyone who is looking for quality medical care and outstanding service. Dr Parsons Orthodontics is a wonderful addition to our medical community.
