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!!!

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.
