Schwartz Expander

Updated: Oct 5, 2018

Why a Schwartz expander?

  • The shwartz applies gentle pressure as you expand

  • It is easy to keep the teeth clean

  • You get to pick colors

  • But, most importantly, IT WORKS!

The typical recommendations:

  • Wear your expander 24 hours per day

  • Take it out only to brush your teeth and brush your retainer

  • Remember the “F” words – in your face or in your fingers!

  • Turn one full turn every Monday and every Friday



What to expect:

  • It will feel a little weird to eat and talk at first, buy you can practice by reading aloud and eating soft foods for the first couple days

  • Be sure to brush your expander every morning and night with your toothbrush and toothpaste

  • As you make progress, you will see your teeth unravel and the true potential of your smile will be revealed! Don't be surprised if some spaces develop... this is normal!
