Transpalatal distractors (TPD)

Distraction osteogenesis of the craniofacial skeleton is indicated for patients suffering from transverse maxillary hypoplasia, when only orthodontic treatment does not bring sufficient relief.

Surgically Assisted Rapid Palatal Expansion (SARPE) is the skeletal transverse widening of the basal maxilla, the palate, and the dental arch. This can be performed with tooth-borne or bone-born distraction devices.

With a Transpalatal Distractor (TPD) the forces act directly on the bone at the mechanically desired level, eliminating several drawbacks linked to tooth-born methods.
