dc.description.abstractA. Haas (55) has advocated the acrylic maxillary expansion appliance (MEA) feeling it provides a more orthopedic effect with the palatal acrylic transmitting the force of the appliance directly to the vertical palatal walls and alveolar processes and supporting them during retention. R. Wertz (114-116), R. Isaacson and J. Murphy (62) do not agree with the necessity of direct palatal support and feel the same results can be achieved with a totally tooth borne appliance. The purpose of this experiment was to compare the dental and skeletal stability of cases expanded with the acrylic type MEA to the stability of cases expanded with totally tooth borne MEAs. Nineteen subjects were involved in a radiographic study of the skeletal changes while 12 subjects were included in the evaluation of the dental changes. The subjects were divided randomly into two groups. [TRUNCATED]en_US
