  • There will be some major changes when wearing an expander. Our son went from the most god awful gap in his front teeth, to the most wonderful smile... Just keep going to the appointments, and the orthodontist will make sure it's all okay.

  • Yep. My daughter had the expander for what seemed like forever. Even for a month or two after they put the braces on. she's almost done with them though.
