Orthodontic Appliances for Arch Expansion

Attached to the upper molars through bonding or by cemented bands, the Rapid Palatal Expander is an orthodontic device used to create a wider space in the upper jaw. When patients are still growing, their connective tissue between the left and right halves of their upper jaw is very responsive to expansion.
Reasons for the treatment :
  • Corrects a crossbite. The upper teeth should close around the outside of the lower teeth. In a patient with a narrow palate, the upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth. This results in asymmetrical growth of the lower jaw, which can cause facial asymmetry, if it isn’t corrected in time.
  • Eliminates or reduces overcrowding, by making space for all your child’s upper teeth to erupt in their correct positions.
  • Improves breathing ability. A narrow or deep upper jaw makes it difficult for a child to breathe through his nose. This results in continuous mouth-breathing, which causes the unhealthy inhalation of unfiltered bacteria, dry mouth and potential halitosis.
