What should we expect with a Palate Expander?

Ask the Orthodontist

Havis 60th

Expanders may be removable or fixed. The vast majority of
orthodontist specialists use fixed or non-removable due to their
greater efficiency, predictability and inability to get lost, misplaced
or not worn. Your expander may take a few days to get used to.
Chewing, swallowing, and talking may seem awkward. Your mouth or
nose may even feel tingly, or may have a slight headache. Over-the-
counter pain relievers can help you feel better at the beginning. You
will wear your expander for about 3 to 6 months.

lorence and Sam Havis of
Southfield will celebrate their
60th wedding anniversary
Aug. 17 with their children, Michael
and Carol, Sharon, and Alan and
Carol; grandchildren, Benjamin,
Solomon, Lilly and Izzy; and many
cousins and friends. All wish them
mazel toy.

A palate expander is an appliance that fits near the roof of the mouth
(palate). It widens the palate to improve the way the upper and
lower jaws fit together (your bite) and can make more room to fit
into alignment crowded teeth. Orthodontists, when kids are growing
and teeth are erupting, (or soon to erupt), may decide, as opposed to
having crowding or a need to extract teeth in the future, to make more
room with a palate expander.

In about a week or so, you may see gaps between your front teeth.
That's a sign the expander is working. These gaps may not form or
they may close on their own. After the expander has stopped being
turned the gaps may close and this is not a sign that expansion has
been lost. The teeth have elastic fibers between them that sometimes
move the teeth back together at different rates.

Most expanders need to be activated 1 or 2 times a day at first. You
do this with a metal key. This may be tricky the first few times you try.
But soon you'll get the hang of it.
