This article reports the use of a Expansion/fa?page=1&sort=1&ftyp=all&fgrp=all&fyrs=all" target="_blank">Miniscrew-Assisted Rapid Palatal Expansion (MARPE) device for the correction of transverse skeletal maxillary constriction in an Adult patient. The patient was a 20-year-old girl with a transverse maxillary deficiency and bilateral posterior crossbite. A MARPE device was positioned on her palate using 4 miniscrews. The activation protocol was one-quarter turn per day every other day, with a total activation duration of 10 weeks following with a 3-month retention period. Pre-MARPE and post-MARPE Cone-beam computed tomography cross sections presented a skeletal Expansion of maxilla.
