Read the link, its not accurate, its marketing All orthodontist do this for adults as well as children in the cases where its indicated, but best go to an orthodontist for a consultation and they will tell you more specifically for your individual case. We actually had a thread on here not long ago with somebody who had rapid arch expansion in their 30's. I see a lot of adults who have braces and their arch shape changes dramatically. There are the proponents of ALF around the place. But best keep to the mainstream. Things that work are mainstream and things are are a bit out there, are well...a bit out there. There are a whole load of different approaches, whole loads of shills and crackpots. The approach doesnt matter, its the result that matters. My advice is solid, see an orthodontist, tell them the result you want and take their advice on how to get that.
