Rapid Palate Expander

A Rapid Palate Expander (or “RPE”) is used to expand the palate and to correct the bite that either has a crossbite (“opposite” bite) or a narrow upper arch. It widens the upper jaw to create space for permanent teeth. An RPE is usually worn for six to nine months in order to correct the bite.
