2018 Annual Session Conference

Early Treatment of Transverse Problems: Is it Worth the Effort?

‐ May 5, 2018 7:45am

Two-phase treatment has been a controversial topic for decades. The speaker will give his perspective on the role of rapid maxillary expansion in early mixed dentition patients. Bonded RME is used in Class I patients to increase available arch space, spontaneously improve Class II problems, improve eruption of impacted canines, and facilitate Class III correction. Indications and contraindications will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze the long-term stability of early arch expansion, with and without the use of the lower Schwarz appliance.
  • Familiar themselves with spontaneous sagittal improvement of Class II relationships following RME.
  • Identify several ways of using a bonded expander in the correction of Class III issues.
