The W-arch obviously got its name from its appearance. It is another form of expansion of the upper teeth. Unlike the RPE, it does not expand the whole upper arch but instead widens only the teeth in the arch form. The W-Arch is a non-removable appliance bonded to the permanent upper molars. It has been activated prior to placement and will expand at a gradual rate, requiring no help from the patient or parents.
