This case report describes the use of a microimplant-assisted rapid palatal expansion (MARPE) appliance to orthopedically correct a transverse maxillary deficiency in an adult patient. Expansion forces transmitted through the teeth in traditional rapid palatal expansion appliances create unwanted dental effects rather than true skeletal expansion, particularly in older patients with more rigid interdigitation of the midpalatal suture. This 19-year-old patient had maxillary constriction with a… CONTINUE READING
