It is well documented in the literature that a contracted maxilla is commonly associated with nasal obstruction. Midpalatal splitting using the rapid maxillary expansion (RME) technique produces separation of the maxillary halves with consequent widening of the nasal cavity. Although clinicians agree about many of the indications for and outcomes of RME, some disagreements persist in relation to the biomechanical effects induced. The present research was based on the parametric analysis of a… CONTINUE READING
