What are Expanding Appliances and Partial Braces?

This treatment will widen your child’s upper jaw. It will help make room for permanent teeth to come in properly, and create an ideal bite.

Why does my child need this?

Early orthodontics can treat habits as well as problems such as crowded teeth, narrow or underdeveloped jaws, large or overdeveloped jaws, crossbites, and overbites.

This appliance will help your child by creating space and:

  • Lessening the need for jaw surgery in the future.
  • Helping reduce the risk of adult teeth getting stuck in the bone.
  • Reducing the need to have adult teeth removed later.
  • Lowering chances of needing future orthodontic treatment or making future treatment simpler.


How does it work?
By turning the key at home, it helps to widen the upper jaw while your child grows, guiding it in the right direction.
