INTRODUCTION Rapid palatal expansion (RPE) is routinely used to correct transverse deficiencies in the maxilla, but its effects on the dentoalveolus are uncertain. The purpose of this study was to compare measurements made on cone-beam computerized tomography scans between patients with RPE treatment and controls to determine transverse dimension increases and the amounts of alveolar and dental tipping. METHODS Twenty-five patients with posterior crossbite who required RPE treatment and 25… CONTINUE READING
