Palatal Expander

In cases where the upper jaw needs to be widened for effective orthodontic treatment, orthodontists will use a palatal expander. The expander is fitted into the patient’s mouth, putting gentle pressure on the upper teeth with each adjustment. Once the desired expansion has been achieved, the appliance is worn for several months to prevent relapse by allowing the palate bones to adjust to the new size.
