Accutech Orthodontic Lab, Inc, Chesapeake, Va, will exhibit at the AAO Technology Conference in Las Vegas next month. Accutech welcomes all orthodontists to visit Booth No. 204 and speak to company representatives.

The Conference will take place February 8–10, 2008, at the JW Marriott Resort and Spa.  The Exhibit Hall is located in the Marquis Ballroom and will be open on the following days:

• Friday, February 8: 9:30 AM–6 PM;

• Saturday, February 9: 9:30 AM–6 PM; and

• Sunday, February 10: 9:30 AM–Noon.

During the Conference, Accutech will showcase its orthodontic product line, which includes the Freedom-Lock™ Appliance System. According to the company, the Freedom Lock’s design delivers a rigid and secure appliance for the patient, but provides the clinical advantage of a quick and easy removal or reinsertion at any time during treatment. Any type of screw that would be used for a fixed RPE can be used with the Freedom-Lock system. Its hinged mechanism fills the buccal tube with a snug fit but easily slides in and out, and it has a gentle curve that crosses the occlusal surface. The “flat” locking clasp is paramount to the retention of this appliance system. Its design delivers a snap-tight lock for insertion and easy release flexibility for quick and clean removal. Freedom-Lock pushes from the lingual and pulls from the buccal simultaneously.

In addition to the Freedom-Lock™ system, Accutech will display an appliance from Airway Management Inc that doctors can prescribe for patients who suffer from sleep apnea—the TAP® 3 Appliance.

The Thornton Adjustable Positioner 3 (TAP 3) is a mandibular advancement device that improves breathing and eliminates snoring in 95% of all patients, according to the company. The TAP 3 helps prevent conditions that are linked to sleep apnea such as chronic sleepiness, high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, heartburn, morning headache, and depression. It treats this condition and reduces the impact of associated health risks without the need for surgery, CPAP, or medication.
