Palatal Expanders

Photo: Rapid Palatal Expander appliance 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.

Removable Appliances
