"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."

Doctors Bruce Haskill and John Mink featured the Bluegrass appliance in their article published in the Journal of Pediatric Dentistry, Volume 13, number 2.

Patients with thumb-sucking habits find it easier to tolerate than the rake-type habit appliances and have a greater success of breaking their habit because of the roller giving the
tongue something to play with, therefore eliminating the need for the thumb.

This is best suited for mixed-dentition cases.
