Hypoplasia of the upper maxilla is a widespread condition which orthodontists often need to face during early treatment. Mechanical maxillary expansion (both rapid and slow) produce undiagnosed effects on the palatal suture and unwanted side-effects on the periodontium and alveolar process, as well as anchorage-teeth displacement, root resorption, bone fenestration. It is clear that early therapies need a nonmechanical and non-traumatic approach in the respect of the physiology and biology of one of the most important systems for the future health of the developing patient.

Abstract

Hypoplasia of the upper maxilla is a widespread condition which orthodontists often need to face during early treatment. Mechanical maxillary expansion (both rapid and slow) produce undiagnosed effects on the palatal suture and unwanted side-effects on the periodontium and alveolar process, as well as anchorage-teeth displacement, root resorption, bone fenestration. It is clear that early therapies need a nonmechanical and non-traumatic approach in the respect of the physiology and biology of one of the most important systems for the future health of the developing patient.
