Our orthodontist may recommend a palatal expander to help ensure your teeth have enough space to erupt properly. This orthodontic appliance is usually recommended when the upper jaw is too narrow for all the teeth and helps widen the jaw so that your teeth can come in without complications. To make an appointment with Dr. Tazeen Ahmed and learn more about palatal expanders in Las Vegas, Nevada, call The Tooth Family Dental at 702-202-1603.
