If your mouth is too narrow for orthodontic treatment to be effective, Dr. Kelly Tabacchi may recommend a palatal expander to widen your mouth and create space for your teeth. studioSMILE Orthodontics offers a clear, “Invisalign-like” expander to achieve the results you need while also giving you a more discreet treatment.

Palatal Expanders are used when Early Treatment is necessary. Dr. Kelly likes to see her patients by age 7, but usually, if a palatal expander is necessary it will begin closer to age 8 or 9. Dr. Kelly no longer utilizes bulky, metal expanders. She uses state of the art clear, aligners like expanders which are much more comfortable and allow for much easier brushing and flossing.
