I have a question regarding the Schwarz appliance. I have been wearing it for a couple of weeks now, and I have noticed that, on expanding the upper palate, the palate has come down and it became less shallow. Why is it so? Is it a good thing to have the palate coming down? How should be the palate usually, when you are not wearing the retainer? Shallow or more flat? Please suggest.
As a part of our body, palate comes in many shapes and sizes. It may be deeper, more shallow, flatter and it may include a torus palatinus. This appliance, which, you are using now, modifies your palate and it helps to erase some orthodontic problems. As long as the age is concerned, when the body growth ends, the palate gains a standard size, and this application can make it flatter than it is used to be. You can consult your orthodontist and check it whether everything is fine.
