If Dr. J. Perry Ormiston needs to make more room in the upper dental arch, he may use a palatal expander. This appliance is anchored onto the molars, pushing them out gradually and making room for the teeth to shift and align correctly. To find out more about our palatal expanders in Puyallup or Eatonville, Washington, make an appointment with our orthodontist at Ormiston Orthodontics by calling 253-848-3529.
