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!!!

I haven't even received my Invisalign trays yet but my visits so far have been nothing short of amazing! Dr. Parsons is extremely sweet and her staff is just as incredible! Dr. Parsons knew I didn't want braces because I knew they would make me feel self conscious and she did her absolute best to help me get approved for my Invisalign! I've never felt more welcomed by any other Dr.'s office before and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Parsons to anyone who needs orthodontic help. Her facility is spotless and the design of it is beautiful! 11 out of 10 would recommend her!!
