Palatal expanders are used to slowly expand the roof of the mouth, widening the upper jaw and preventing crowded teeth and other issues like crossbite and nasal passage restriction. Usually, in preadolescent children whose jaws haven’t finished solidifying yet, it takes around 1-2 months to get the desired expansion and the appliance is left in for another 8-12 months for maintenance.
