Teens & Palate Expansion

Has anyone gone this route with their teen who's past their growth spurt? My daughter's ortho put us in touch with one family going through it now, but I'd love to hear from anyone who's out the other side. The expansion is for her airways, not cosmetic, and I'm hoping that it'll help her get better sleep and lower her anxiety and adhd symptoms.

I trust the ortho (Dr. Ferrari) but the more invasive option is scary for us all, and right now the kid is not up for it at all. I've also read that after the growth spurt expansion can cause recession, or not work, so I'm doing due diligence. 

Thanks! (Btw, I highly recommend the book Breath, by James Nestor)
