This lecture will describe the diagnosis and treatment of transverse problems in the preadolescent children. The rapid palatal expansion (RPE) is an integral treatment for maxillary transverse deficiency. A series of cone beam CT studies conducted at the University of Pennsylvania on the effects of RPE on the nasomaxillay complex in three planes of space will be reported. In addition, the effects of RPE on different age groups (younger and older children) will be presented and its clinical implications will be discussed.
