Upper Schwarz Appliance
The Schwarz Appliance is a removable appliance that can be used in children or adults to expand the upper or lower arches in order to make room for all the permanent teeth. The appliance has a midline screw which is adjusted very slowly to avoid any discomfort for the patient. Arch expansion in the upper arch results in the patient having a broader smile at the end of treatment. The clasps that hold the appliance in the mouth are also very comfortable.
