Standard Rapid Palatal Expander

The Standard Rapid Palatal Expander uses a metal screw soldered to bands. It is opened at a rate of 1/2 mm per day using a wire key.

The screw opens laterally causing the palatal plates to push apart. The patient is instructed to open the screw 1/4 turn twice a day until the desired amount of expansion is achieved.

The appliance is then worn passively to act as a stabilizing device until new bone has formed along the suture.
