Description

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.

Dr. Peter Ngan is a professor and chair of the Department of Orthodontics at West Virginia University. He maintains an active practice in the university’s dental faculty practice in Morgantown, WV.
