Fan RPE (Rapid Palatal Expander)

The fan expander (fan RPE) allows for rapid expansion of the palate widening the arch of the anterior section while still maintaining the expansion at the molar level. This appliance self-
deactivates when maximum expansion has been achieved preventing over-treatment. The Fan RPE is commonly used for patients with cleft palates and comes in 7 and 11 mm. With each expansion appliance, we provide a custom swivel key that has an integrated activation recording tool directly on the handle.
