Maxillary Skeletal Expander

Maxillary Skeletal Expander

The days where surgically assisted upper jaw expansion for most adult cases are gone. Maxillary skeletal expanders, also known as the mid-face expander, are minimally invasive advanced orthodontic appliances designed to widen the upper jaw (maxilla) and correct various dental, skeletal and airway issues. At Daia Orthodontics & TMJ Orthopedics, we offer this effective treatment option to address crowded teeth, crossbites, narrow dental arches, dark smile corridors, and obstructed nasal airways.

Benefits of Maxillary Skeletal Expanders

  • Corrects crowded teeth and dental arch discrepancies
  • Improves bite alignment and occlusion
  • Enhances facial symmetry and aesthetics
  • Non-surgical approach to addressing maxillary deficiencies
  • Customized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs

Our Treatment Process

Our experienced orthodontic team begins treatment with a comprehensive evaluation, including dental 5D scans and 3D X-rays, to determine the appropriate course of action. Once the maxillary skeletal expander is installed, patients receive detailed instructions on how to activate the MSE device.

Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to the maxillary skeletal expander. Throughout treatment, our compassionate team ensures patient comfort and provides support every step of the way.
