Quick Reference

(RME)

A process of orthodontic tooth movement using a fixed hyrax screw appliance. The screw is turned twice a day and is designed to ‘split’ the maxillary midline palatal suture and affect expansion of the upper arch by skeletal movement as opposed to dento-alveolar movement. Surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion (SARME) is the surgical splitting of the midline palatal suture to assist in rapid palatal expansion.

Subjects: Dentistry.
