You must be registered to participate!

Can we obtain skeletal expansion to treat maxillary transverse discrepancy after pubertal growth spurt? With the advent of temporary skeletal anchorage device (TADs) such as mini-implants and miniplates, can we increase the scope of treatment with skeletally matured patients? The speaker will review the traditional approach for maxillary expansion and introduce the Micro-implant Assisted Rapid Palatal Expansion (MARPE) appliance.

After this lecture you will be able to:

1.) Discuss the limitations of traditional approach to maxillary expansion.
2.) Discuss new possibilities in treatment of patients with maxillary transverse deficiency with Micro-implant Assisted Rapid Palatal Expansion (MARPE) appliance.
