[ Quad Helix Expansion Appliance ]

HOW DOES IT WORK?
It works by pushing on the teeth on both sides and moving them outwards

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Approximately 6-9 months

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
You will get food caught in the plate and it will interfere with speech for 1-2 weeks after insertion. It will be annoying as your tongue will touch the spring all the time initially.

WHAT IF ONE SIDE COMES OUT
Lie the patient down and try to replace the post on the appliance into the slots on the bands.

DO brush well around the appliance and remove
any food caught with a tooth brush.
DON’T eat anything chewy or sticky
