Rapid Palatal expander protocol? What is the process or procedure for placing an axpander?
Are there any impressions that need to be taken before hand to get model of the patients mouth so you can have a properly fitted expander? .... Visitor from MN
No two dentists or orthodontists follow the exact, same protocol.

Since "standards of care" are precisely defined by each state dental board, it is recommended that you contact your state dental board for clarification.
