Bonded Rapid Palatal Expander
The bonded RPE is similar to the banded version with the exception of the method of attachment to the teeth. This appliance is constructed with an acrylic cap over the posterior segments, which is then bonded directly to the teeth. To aid the debonding procedure, debonding loops are added. Auxiliaries such as face mask hooks, cribs, arch wire tubes and headgear tubes can be added.
