This appliance improves the way the upper and lower jaws fit together. It widens the jaw so there is sufficient room for permanent teeth to come in. Expansion can make the final smile broader and more attractive. Left untreated, a narrow palate can lead to excessive wearing of the teeth or the need for extensive dental work as an adult.
These appliances, unlike conventional braces, are used to retain teeth in their corrected positions. In some cases, they can be designed to influence the growth of the jaws or tooth position and are called active retainers or spring aligners.
