IT’S NEVER TOO LATE to widen your dental arch for a gold medal smile.
As an adult, broadening your upper jaw may include an orthopedic palatal expansion procedure called SARPE.
SARPE Can Improve Your Bite And Broaden Your Smile
SARPE, surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion, uses oral surgery to lightly release bony sutures of the upper jaw, the maxilla, with an expansion appliance. SARPE expands nasal passages to improve breathing and broadens your dental arch for a big, beautiful smile.
Oral surgeons and orthodontists work together to make SARPE available. Less rapid expansion is often used for increased comfort and stability. Adults age 30 and older with narrow upper dental arches and palates are helped by SARPE to gain a broad, comfortable, and functional bite.
