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.
My daughter fell in love with the office from the minute she walked in. The color on the walls are so calming. Office is very clean. The whole staff had smiles on their faces. Dr. Parsons is very sweet and made my daughter feel so comfortable. This was our first consultation. They are so flexible with their payment options. We loved it so much that we scheduled the following day to have her braces put on.
