This study evaluated stability, tipping and relapse after surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARME), comparing bone-borne and tooth-borne devices, in skeletally matured non-syndromal patients with transverse maxillary hypoplasia. The study is a randomized, open-label, clinical trial. Patients were randomized to bone-borne (n=25) and tooth-borne (n=21) groups. The surgical technique for corticotomy was the same in both groups.
