Skeletal and dental effects of maxillary expansion


Radha Chauhan, Ajay Gupta, Arvind Jyani, Prajakta Barapatre

The purpose of this review was to analyze the results from the studies on rapid maxillary expansion (RME) and mini-screw assisted rapid palatal expansion (MARPE) regarding the dental and skeletal effects. This review will describe the effects of the RME and MARPE needs to be analyzed immediately after expansion and at long term follow up after expansion. The evaluation of the dental effects of expansion include the measurements of intermolar width and intercanine width before and after expansion while the skeletal effects include the analysis of the skeletal width of maxilla. The understanding of these effects of maxillary expansion are important in treating patients with posterior crossbite.
