Expansion in maxillary arch can be done with various appliances like Quadhelix, W arch, NiTi palatal expander, hyrax appliance and so on. When it comes to the mandibular arch, the concept of expansion isn’t similar to that of the upper arch. This is due to the absence of sutures and light slow continuous forces are required for expansion of mandibular arches, where TransForce lingual expander was one such appliance.
