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.
Clean office! Great staff! My daughter never complains about going to the orthodontist here. Very competitive prices. Dr. Parsons is great at making sure you understand what her plan is for treatment and everyone makes my daughter feel comfortable there. We are very happy and I highly recommend them!
