Evaluation of rapid, slow, and mini implant assisted rapid maxillary expansion-A literature review


Ashish Kumar

The aim of this review is to describe the dental, dentoalveolar and skeletal changes in different planes such as vertical plane, transverse plane, and anteroposterior plane, that occur with Rapid maxillary expansion (RME), slow maxillary expansion (SME), and mini implant assisted rapid maxillary expansion (MARME). In the patients undergoing expansion, a cone beam computed tomography can be done before the expansion and after expansion to observe the changes occurring due to treatment. This review will describe the effects of tipping due to expanders. The effects of dental expansion and skeletal expansion will be discussed in this review. Also, a new modality U-MARPE used for unilateral expansion will be discussed in this review article.
