Hyrax Rapid Palatal Expander- RPE
The Rapid Palatal Expander (RPE) is one of the best orthopedic appliances available in orthodontics. It works by widening the bone in the upper arch. At an early age we can separate the midpalatal suture in the upper arch allowing the palate to widen and create more room for the adult teeth or widen the smile to better fit with the lower teeth. Once he completes a thorough dental exam, Dr. Razavi can determine if an RPE will be beneficial.
