Irregular jaw size can result in posterior crossbites that, if not worked on at the right time, can result in more orthodontic treatment in the future. This is where Palatal expander comes in; Palatal Expander can help your child when they need it, rather than waiting to correct more serious issues later.
It’s your duty as a parent to monitor your child’s mouth for proper growth. Early correction of issues such as posterior crossbites as soon as they become apparent is essential in orthodontics. For adults whose parents failed to correct these crossbite issues in youth, the orthodontics treatment is often painful and expensive.
Standard palatal expanders only work when the jaw is still growing, So it is crucial to start treatment as soon as possible. The main purpose of the expanders is to prepare the mouth for additional Orthodontic work, such as braces. As a parent, you will be tasked with turning the palate expander key to adjust the expander. The key will be rotated until a new hole appears in the middle.
