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!
