A conservative surgical orthodontic technique that facilitates the widening of the adult maxilla at the midpalatal suture is presented. This procedure uses only lateral maxillary corticotomies and a maxillary Hyrax split-palate appliance. In all sixteen cases attempted, separation of the midpalatal suture was confirmed by occlusal radiographs and a diastema between the maxillary central incisors.
