Removable Palatal Expander
Your child’s palatal expander needs to be worn all the time, except when eating and brushing. To turn the expander use the key given and turn the expander by inserting the key into the hole located at the base of the arrow. Turn in the direction of the arrow. Be sure you make one complete turn so that you can see the next hole appearing at the base of the arrow. Turn the expander per the instructions given to you by Dr. Saba, which is usually every other night.
