how do they put braces on with a expander? is it the same as normal braces ?
- SandyLv 71 month agoFavourite answer
There are a couple of different ways of fitting the expander. Some have molar bands, or rings, that fit around the back molars. Some are bonded to those teeth.
Where I work, the expander usually goes in first and stays in place for a while, then the braces go on.
