May 21, 2022 1:35pm ‐ May 21, 2022 2:05pm

Credits: None available.


Maxillary expansion with traditional rapid palatal expansion appliances is limited to treatment of maxillary deficiencies before the pubertal growth spurt. Treatment with tooth-borne expansion appliances also has side effects such as tipping and extrusion of anchorage teeth. The speaker will introduce the use of bone-borne expansion appliance for maxillary expansion which may expand the scope of orthopedic treatment in young adults.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the limitations in maxillary expansion with tooth-borne expansion appliance.
  • Identify the use of various designs of bone-borne expansion appliances in treatment of maxillary deficiencies in young adults with the help of TADs.
  • Evaluate when to use tooth-borne and bone-borne expanders in their practice.
