"Thank you, NorthStar, for more than 20 years of specialized service. My needs have been very specific, probably differing from normal techniques, and I know that I have been difficult to please at times, but I greatly appreciate your interest in helping me design appliances. I know your services will continue at the high quality you have always provided me with."

This appliance is used to gain space for crowded lower teeth. It holds the strong lip muscle away from the anteriors and puts force against the molars to push them back and create space. At the same time the lingual arch maintains space and rounds out the anterior teeth.
