What is a Hyrax Appliance?

This treatment will widen your upper jaw in order to create an ideal bite.



Why do I need this?

• It fixes crossbite and crowding
• The temporary mini implants act like an anchor while widening the jaw
• It is a less invasive alternative to jaw surgery

How does it work?

  • The appliance is cemented to the teeth.
  • Mini implants are placed.
  • By turning the key at home, it helps to slowly widen the upper jaw, allowing teeth to be properly aligned.
  • There will be a feeling of tension for the first day after the appliance is placed. There may be slight tension whenever you turn the key.
