Question:
Palate expander: My son just turned 7. His Dr. Is recommending a palate expander due to over crowding and crossbite.

Is he too young? Should I wait? ...Visitor from Oxford

Answer:
It is likely that the crossbite issues warrant immediate treatment more so than the overcrowding.

Untreated crossbite during prime developmental years can lead to significant jaw function issues and a disturbed development of normal dentition.
