Myo before expander or vice versa?
Saturday, 04 January 2014
An orthdontist recommended a palatal expansion after myofunctional therapy for an 8 year old.. I explained that the palatal expansion should take place before myo and she felt that myo would go first and the tongue would widen the palate. You said the tongue would not widen that palate at 8 years of age. Can you help me to understand why the tongue is not going to widen it. Is it because of the patient's age? Is there an age at which the tongue will naturally widen a narrow palate?
