A palatal expander is an orthodontic appliance used to widen the upper jaw in order to help the upper and lower teeth fit together better. When you visit with our experienced orthodontist, we will analyze your teeth and your bite to determine the orthodontic services that are appropriate for your needs. Many of our patients required adjustments to their bite in order to help their top teeth and their bottom teeth fit together in a way that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. If your upper jaw is too narrow, our orthodontist may recommend a palatal expander to widen your teeth. We can help you learn more about palatal expanders during your next appointment with our orthodontist.
Dr. Ora Rosenfeld Canter and our entire team are eager to accommodate your dental needs at our office. We are pleased to be your resource for orthodontic needs, and we can help you determine which services would be beneficial for your smile.
