Rylee gets an RPE (Rapid Palatal Expander)!

Braces lincoln ne

Around age 7, children have a mix of baby (primary) and permanent teeth. Having your first free visit as permanent teeth take the place of baby teeth, and as the face and jaws are growing, gives our doctors a lot of information.

If a problem exists, or if one is developing, our doctors are able to advise you on whether treatment is recommended, when it should begin, what form treatment will take, and estimate its length. There are many things we can do during growth that can make later treatment faster or even more successful for orthodontics for kids!

Have you been following our friend Rylee as she gets a Rapid Palatal Expander placed? This is a great example of early interceptive orthodontics. We’re explaining it all in stories on Facebook and Instagram!
