These appliances might be recommended for patients when a discrepancy may exist between the upper and lower jaws. The upper jaw may be too far ahead or too far behind. Similarly, the lower jaw can be too far ahead or behind. These appliances are designed to gently and gradually enhance growth in the desired direction and create a more harmonious relationship between the upper and lower jaws. Sometimes these appliances are combined with a palatal expander and braces.

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!
