How to use Miniscrew-assisted rapid palatal expansion to manage arch perimeter in adults

Ajay Gupta

Maxillary arch constriction can result in dental crowding in patients and the correction of the transverse deficiency of maxilla can be useful in correction of the dental crowding as well as for maintain the inclination of incisors. In adults, maxillary arch constriction cannot be corrected in the same way as in children. In children, Rapid palatal expansion (RPE) is normally used to correct the maxillary arch construction. However, in adults, a surgical alternative such as surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion (SARPE) technique is performed to remove the resistance of increased maturation of sutures to allow the correction of maxillary arch constriction. Patients and orthodontists alike are often looking for a non-surgical alternative to avoid the complications associated with SARPE technique. MARPE technique provides a non-surgical alternative to the SARPE technique for the correction of transverse maxillary deficiency in adults. In this review article, miniscrew-assisted rapid palatal expansion technique (MARPE) technique and its use in adult patients for increasing arch perimeter will be described.
