Child Orthodontic RME Study
Protocol: STUDY00004544
Full Title
Mandibular Movement Analysis Following Maxillary Expansion
This study enrolls children who are having orthodontic treatment and need a rapid maxillary expansion (RME) device. The purpose of this study is to learn about the effects of palatal expansion on jaw movement during sleep.

We expect that your child will be in this research study from the beginning of his/her orthodontic treatment, until after his/her palatal expander is removed (about 4-5 months). You will complete questionnaires and your child will place a small light sensor on his/her chin before they go to sleep at night, and remove it when they wake up. They will do this on three different nights. Study takes place at UB's South Campus.
Compensation: No
-Children ages 7-14.
-Are under orthodontic care and need to use a rapid maxillary expansion (RME) device
