Question:
How long is too long for an expander: Is wearing an expander for 6 months to a year normal if you have a really bad cross bite and an open bite? .... Visitor from IN

Answer:
There really is no "normal" time span for treatments that address a uniquely abnormal issue.

Some patients are required to wear braces for a considerable length of time, way beyond 12 months to correct a skeletal abnormality.

The progress of treatment often can be accelerated for some patients by asking the orthodontist to use an aggressive treatment plan.
