Dental Expanders

Dental Expanders: Achieve Proper Bite and Alignment

If you’re struggling with issues related to your bite or alignment, dental expanders may be the solution you need. At Balmain Dentist, we offer dental expanders to patients who need a little help achieving the perfect smile.

What are Dental Expanders?

Dental expanders are orthodontic appliances used to widen the palate and correct misaligned teeth. They work by applying pressure to the upper teeth, gradually expanding the arch and creating space for the teeth to move into their proper positions. They can be used for a variety of issues, including overcrowding, crossbite, and overbite.

Types of Dental Expanders

There are two main types of dental expanders: removable and fixed. Removable expanders are made of acrylic and can be removed for cleaning and adjusting. Fixed expanders, on the other hand, are cemented to the teeth and cannot be removed until the treatment is complete.

The type of expander recommended for you will depend on your specific needs and the severity of your orthodontic issue.

The Benefits of Dental Expanders

Dental expanders offer a number of benefits, including:

  • Correcting bite and alignment issues
  • Reducing the need for extractions or other more invasive treatments
  • Improving facial symmetry and appearance
  • Improving speech and breathing
  • Preventing dental problems in the future
