Maxillary Expansion Appliance to widen the anterior portion of the arch. The screw opens in a fan or wedge and a hinge in the posterior prevents expansion in the molar region. Good appliance to correct “V” shaped arches and uncrowd the anterior segment.
Mandibular slow expander to upright the posterior teeth to create space to uncrowd the lower arch and create better arch form. It is good for adults and children.
3D Skeletal Expander
Mandibular slow expansion appliance. A smaller screw is placed in acrylic and is more gentile to the tongue. Good option when there is a severely lingual incisor that is blocked out of the arch. It is fabricated on Wilson 3D slots for easy adjustments.
Mandibular expander for younger patients where the 1st molars have not erupted enough to band. A wire is extended to the 1st molars so they will expand along with the rest of the arch. A lingual wire helps to align the anteriors as the arch is expanded.
3D Wilson Multi Action
Maxillary light wire Fixed/Removable appliance that can be used to widen the arch and flare the anteriors forward. The appliance can be removed from the bands for the doctor to activate it, but the patient cannot remove it.
3D Wilson Quad Action
Mandibular version of the Multi Action. Fixed/Removable appliance to widen the lower arch, upright the posterior segments and flare the anteriors forward. The appliance can be removed from the bands for the doctor to activate it, but the patient cannot remove it.
Super Screw Expander
Maxillary expander used for slow or rapid expansion. It is similar to the RPE, but uses a different type of screw. The screw requires a special wrench to activate it. Some patients find it easier to adjust than the RPE screw.
E – Arch
Maxillary or Mandibular pre-activated expansion appliance. The open coil spring provides the force to expand the arch. There is nothing that needs to be adjusted or activated by the doctor or the patient.
