    There are a couple of different ways of fitting the expander. Some have molar bands, or rings, that fit around the back molars. Some are bonded to those teeth.

    Where I work, the expander usually goes in first and stays in place for a while, then the braces go on.

    The user who said "well they don't" is incorrect.
