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.

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.

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.

consultation at either of our locations.
