Expanders are orthodontic appliances used to widen the upper jaw to correct bite problems or create more space for crowded teeth. They work by gradually increasing the separation between the right and left halves of the upper jaw, creating more room for the teeth.
Expanders are typically custom-fitted to the patient's mouth and consist of a metal arch that fits across the roof of the mouth, with screws on either side that are gradually turned to increase the width of the arch. The expansion process can take several weeks or months, depending on the specific treatment plan.
Expanders are most often used in growing children and teenagers, when the bones of the jaw and face are still developing, but can also be used in adult patients. They are typically worn for several hours a day, either during the day or while sleeping, depending on the specific treatment plan. Expanders can be used in combination with other orthodontic devices, such as braces or aligners, to achieve optimal results.
