    Default OT: Jaw extender

    Does anyone have any experience with jaw extenders (called palate adjuster when I was I kid)? My daughter has both upper and lower. I have no trouble at all turning the bottom one but cannot for the life of me get the top one to move. Today was the 3rd turn (once of week) but I don't think it has worked.

    Anyway, am I doing something wrong? Should it be just as easy as the bottom? I'm going to call the orthodontist tomorrow.

    I had one when I was about 11. The upper one was never an issue to turn, so I would definitely recommend a call to the orthodontist.

    I had one as a youngster as well and never has an issue with turning the upper one. I agree that you should have it checked out.
