Palatal Expander

The palatal expander “expands” (or widens) your upper jaw by placing gentle pressure on your upper molars each time an adjustment is made. The picture below shows you an example of what a palatal expander looks like. We will give you detailed instructions in the office to make sure that you are completely comfortable with the appliance. Once you achieve the desired expansion, you will wear the appliance for several months to solidify the expansion and to prevent any relapse- because it’s really only fun the first time!
