Palate Expander

A palatal expander is an appliance that fits into the roof of your child’s mouth (palate) to improve the way your child’s upper and lower jaws and teeth fit together (his/her bite). It works quickly and remains in the mouth for about 3 months. After the expander does its job, your child’s palate will be wider. This gives the teeth more space and helps improve the bite.

  • Quick Treatment (as little as 3 months for expansion)
  • Helps your child's top jaw grow naturally and efficiently
  • Brings teeth into proper alignment for treatment


It is our goal to make treatment affordable by offering several payment plans that work with your individual financial needs. Our financial manager will discuss your treatment plan which will include a breakdown of all fees before treatment is started. We offer a variety of payment options, including paid in full discounts and in-house no fee payment plans. We accept all major credit cards.


Many dental insurance plans have a lifetime orthodontic benefit. We will provide you with the paperwork insurance needs from our office so you can file for your reimbursement from your insurance company or FSA/HSA plan. Be assured that our fees are competitive with those of your in-network orthodontists.
