"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."

- Dr. R. J. Gibson (Fergus Falls, MN)

When a case presents adequate molar width but could use just a bit of anterior expansion the Fan Expander can do the job. An expansion screw in the anterior pivots on the posterior hinge as it is opened. With proper acrylic relief during expansion you will be able to see amazing results.

The fan can also be made bondable.
