A palatal expander, also known as a rapid palatal expander, rapid maxillary expansion appliance, palate expander, or orthodontic expander, is used to widen the upper jaw, so the lower and upper teeth will fit together better. It’s used primarily for widening the whole maxillary boney jaw structure and offers true orthopedic expansion and movement.
