Nepčani ekspanderi stvaraju više prostora u djetetovim ustima postepenim širenjem gornje čeljusti. Iako ovo može zvučati zastrašujuće, doista je lako i bez puno neugodnosti. To je moguće zato što se gornja čeljust zapravo razvija kao dvije odvojene polovice koje se ne mogu potpuno spojiti sve do nakon puberteta. Prije nego se to dogodi, dvije se kosti mogu lagano odvojiti i stabilizirati u periodu od nekoliko mjeseci.
