One of the most common orthodontic appliances used in young children is the palatal expander. The expansion of the arch is done to eliminate crowding and crossbites in growing patients.
An expander is attached to the upper molars by bands that are cemented around the teeth. You will be required to do active turns on the expander with a key in between your visits. Although there are removable expanders, fixed ones have an important advantage because they cannot be lost or forgotten.
It is common to feel pressure on the teeth, roof of mouth, behind the nose, and even between the eyes as the expander is activated. This pressure typically fades within minutes.
