New Patient Online Form Hyrax Expander - Cooke Orthodontics Blog

Hyrax - the expander, not the animal!


Don’t worry, we won’t send you home with a brown furry herbivore when we are “delivering” your hyrax expander!

As you start turning your hyrax you may find that a space becomes visible between your teeth, this space is normal and temporary.

To achieve your goal, you must turn your expander as prescribed by Dr. Cooke & her team.



TYPICAL RECOMMENDATION:

Turn Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays

Turn 2 full turns until you feel pressure

MAINTENANCE:

Brush and floss at least 2x/ day, including around your hyrax

DOES IT FEEL LOOSE ON YOUR TEETH?
