Dream Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics: MARPE and Skeletal Expansion for Adults

Advanced Solutions for Sleep Apnea and Breathing Improvement

At Dream Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics we are committed to providing innovative and effective treatments for our patients. One of our specialized services includes the use of MARPE (Mini-Implant Assisted Rapid Palatal Expansion) and skeletal expansion in adults. This advanced orthodontic treatment is designed to address issues related to sleep apnea and improve overall breathing.

What is MARPE?

MARPE is a revolutionary orthodontic appliance that facilitates the widening of the upper jaw (maxilla) using mini-implants. This procedure is particularly beneficial for adults, as it offers a non-surgical solution to expand the dental arch and correct jaw alignment.

Benefits of MARPE and Skeletal Expansion

  1. Enhanced Breathing: By expanding the upper jaw, MARPE helps increase nasal airflow, significantly improving breathing. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals suffering from obstructive sleep apnea and other breathing disorders.
  2. Improved Sleep Quality: Patients undergoing MARPE treatment often experience a reduction in snoring and other sleep apnea symptoms, leading to better sleep quality and overall health.
  3. Non-Invasive Treatment: Unlike traditional surgical methods, MARPE provides a non-surgical approach to jaw expansion, making it a safer and more comfortable option for adult patients.
  4. Effective for Adults: While many orthodontic treatments are geared towards children and teenagers, MARPE is specifically designed to meet the needs of adult patients, providing effective results even in fully developed jaws.

How Does MARPE Work?

MARPE involves the placement of mini-implants in the palate to anchor the expander device. This appliance gradually widens the upper jaw, creating more space in the dental arch and enhancing the airway. The process is closely monitored by our experienced orthodontists to ensure optimal results and patient comfort.

Who Can Benefit from MARPE?

Adults suffering from the following conditions can significantly benefit from MARPE and skeletal expansion:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea
