About the CRANE

the CRANE is an extra-oral device that stabilizes the base of the head on a cervical collar with a forward facing boom to attach elastics from an intra-oral appliance to achieve forward pull of the maxilla and facial bones.

The weight of the head resting on the cervical collar provides the reactive force to the desired action of the maxilla being pulled forward.

Unlike facemasks, this device revolutionizes forward pull by NOT pushing on the cranial bones, mandible or facial bones.  the CRANE delivers precise forces to quickly achieve amazing results without surgery.


the CRANE is more effective than traditional methods of forward pull because it's not using the mandible (considered an anatomical joint) and facial bones (also subject to being pushed in or moved) to "move" the maxilla forward.  Question: Do current methods of reverse pull the maxilla and facial bones out OR are the mandible and facial bones actually being pushed in?
