Habit Appliances


Tongue thrusting, and thumb sucking are the most common oral habits that interfere with proper eruption of the teeth and development of the bite. If the habit is left untreated, it can produce deleterious dental effects such as open bites, dental protrusion, and crossbite.  Dr. Parsons will design a custom habit breaker appliance to assist patients who have unsuccessfully tried to stop their habit and need a little extra help to finally quit.

 

Bruxism, or teeth grinding is another common harmful habit that can cause premature tooth wear, temperomandibular joint problems, jaw pain and  headaches. A custom and affordable night guard made by Dr. Parsons will protect your teeth from these harmful effects!!!
