Smile 3 Distractor
For pathological small upper jaws and clefts
Skeletal expansion or Surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE) is undoubtedly the best treatment option for maxillary constriction and/or severe crowding. The clinical benefits are obvious and multiple. There is no segmental tilting, there is no evidence of any orthodontic/orthopedic relaps, and dental/ periodontal damage is excluded.
- Modules can be changed to a larger module leaving the plates in place
- Very useful distractor for pathological small upper jaws and clefts (module 8, 10, 12 mm)
What should you tell your patient?
- He should see the opening between the 2 front teeth getting larger every day.
- The distractor needs to be cleaned daily by using a soft child toothbrush.
- The distractor should be kept firm and immobile in the mouth for 3 to 5 months. In case the distractor becomes loose during the healing process, they need to contact you to retighten or remove it.
