Developed by Dr. Won Moon, the MSE is a version of the Microimplant Assisted Rapid Palatal Expander (MARPE). The MSE is capable of producing dramatic maxillary skeletal expansion. The MSE uses 4 TADs for fixation to the palate and a wrench for activation. It attaches to 2 molar bands via 4 legs for stabilization.

  • Non-surgical orthopedic expansion in adults
  • Non-surgical expansion in high-angle cases
  • Improve obstructive nasal airway
  • Autoclavable [Minimum of 15 minutes over 121°C. TADs must be removed from plastic cover before autoclaving]
  • Ratchet Wrench is designed for a maximum torque of 80Ncm. When greater torque is applied, the instrument is designed to fail, rather than causing TAD failure.  The failed driver must then be replaced.  
  • Slower movement and regular pauses when inserting TADs are a good practice, as is pre-drilling pilot holes for patients with particularly thick and dense cortical plates.
