Maxillary expansion is a very useful procedure for arch length augmentation, posterior crossbite treatment and removing cross arch interferences. Removable appliances are in the realm of a pedodontist and general dentist. However, one should be aware of the problems arising at an early age of the child, should be able to properly diagnose the condition and if required, a timely referral to a specialist is also expected.
