    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
