Are Removable Palate Expanders As Effective As Fixed Ones?
My dentist is going to give me a removable palate expander. He says its basically brand new technology, it is clear, and has only been out for around a year. My question is, is this as effective as a fixed palate expander? Will I be able to get some increased nasal passage air flow even though I am 20 years of age? Also, my ortho is super cautious because he says I might form a "open bite" because I am a class III? Is this true? I am quite skeptical about the open bite. Thank you!!
