Hyrax RPE With Tongue Crib

The RPE is typically used in phase I treatment to widen the arch, either prior or during fixed treatment. Along with the RPE, we can add a tongue crib to aid in thumb and tongue thrusting habits. Our expanders come in 7 or 11 mm screws and vary in activation depending on the style. Our standard expander uses the 11mm Leone expander and has welded lingual wires expanding to the premolars or cuspids. It is constructed entirely of biomedical stainless steel, and the housing is completely smooth with no rough areas to aid in hygiene. With each expansion appliance, we provide a custom swivel key that has an integrated activation recording tool directly on the handle. Tip: If you find an expander is hard to turn, run under warm water to loosen the threads.

PLEASE SEND OPPOSING ARCH TO OCCLUDE FOR PROPER POSITION.
