Dentaurum USA, Newtown, Pa, introduces PALEX Click, a new ratcheting rapid palatal expander (RPE). The PALEX Click is characterized by a secure activation “click” after each quarter-turn that can be felt and heard by the parent. The company backs the PALEX Click with a 100% guarantee against unwanted back turning. The PALEX Click allows activation in both directions in case of emergency, and has built-in stops to prevent the housing from coming apart after full activation. According to Dentaurum, this RPE offers the lowest-profile ratchet design on the market.
