Item Description

If you or your kids wear an expander or palatally-positioned orthodontic appliance, you'll love this handy new Lil Palates tool.

L'il Palates™ was created by a dentist for his young son. The surprisingly soft and flexible plastic device comfortably flexes along the palatal vault (roof of the mouth) to help loosen trapped food and debris. It's great for Hyrax, Nance, Herbst, Haas, and other orthodontic appliances.

To use, simply place the hooked end between the palate and the expander to remove debris. Intended for adult use/adult supervision.

Gentle and easy to use, L'il Palates stores within its own handle (like a pocket knife) and includes three cheerful rubberized charms: a frog, a turtle, and a butterfly. The device is available in blue (as shown) or purple color. Sorry, charms are not sold separately.

Lynn Says

When you have a palate expander at the roof of your mouth, food always gets stuck there and can be very difficult to remove. This tool makes it easy and simple to deal with the everyday inconveniences of wearing a palate expander.

This is a great tool for kids with expanders
This is really great! A must have....order one if your orthodontist doesn't offer them. It works better than the brushes. Highly recommend

Lifesaver!
This product is a lifesaver!!! My girls are 8 and 10 and were distraught after getting their pallet expanders- they are totally grossed out by food getting stuck and wouldn't eat if I wasn't there with soft picks to clean it- this item is safe, comfy, and easy for them - they pack it in their lunch bag everyday to use after lunch at school! I am buying more for their backpacks and at home!

Life saver!
This tool has been a life saver for my son. I found it online after he cried after eating the first time after getting his palate expander. He would barely eat for a week because of the aggravation of stuff getting stuck between the roof of his mouth and the expander. After getting the palate sweeper and using it the first time he smiled so big at me because it was so easy for him to use and it quickly worked and got the food out.

A necessity with an expander!!
My son, age 8, got his expander last week. I had ordered a few of these in advance as I had ordered items from Denta Kit a few years ago for my own braces. The orthodontist gave my son a little brush to get the stuck food out of the expander, but my son tells me it doesn't work. He absolutely loves this Lil Palates Sweeper. I am back to order a few more! He needs one at home, in my purse, in his backpack, and a couple of backups. They wash nicely with dish soap and water too.

Genius product
Every dentist office should be selling this item. Every child that has a palate extender deals with discomfort and food being lodged underneath. My daughter would panic when the food would not come loose. This product is perfectly designed to extract the food from underneath the palate. Bravo! I have one happy kid now, she takes it with her everywhere!

A must have!
These are great for my 8 year old. We ordered to few to keep on hand at different locations (school, home, mom's purse, etc.) They make the cleaning process a lot easier.

A Must Have for Expanders!
My 7 y/o daughter recently had an expander installed and was so frustrated by the food that was getting stuck on the roof of her mouth. A friend recommended these palate cleaners and they have been wonderful! They are cute, inexpensive, and work! The shipping was very fast as well (ordered Friday night and they were delivered on Monday!) I ordered several so that she could leave one at school, home, and I keep one in my purse! Great purchase!

love it
I love it but I wish there was a carrying case with it. I been using a zip lock baggie which is fine but it would be nicer to have a case.
Merchant Response:Blanca, thanks for your review. We agree, it would be nice to have a case for the Lil Palates Tool. The manufacturer does not supply a case. Perhaps we will look into that idea!

A must-have
The perfect tool to clean the hard-to-reach places created by a palate expander. My granddaughter carries it with her to school, overnight visits, anywhere she plans to eat!
