A single treatment of transversal deficits in the upper jaw at the adult age with conventional expansion devices is difficult due to possible periodontal injury. Surgical procedures (SARME=surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion or multi-segment Fe Fort I surgery) are successfully used when growth is completed. However, some patients reject surgery in general anesthesia. Nevertheless, there are possibilities to perform a transversal upper jaw correction with a less invasive procedure also in the adulthood. This is demonstrated by 2 patient treatment protocols.
