A palatal expander will widen your upper jaw by applying gentle pressure to the upper molars each time an orthodontic adjustment is made.  Follow the instructions below in order to properly adjust your expander at the appropriate times.  After the desired expansion has been achieved, you will still need to wear the expander for a few months in order to maintain the proper alignment.
