Accutech Orthodontic Lab will showcase its orthodontic product line during the AAO Technology Conference.

CHESAPEAKE, Virginia--Accutech Orthodontic Lab, Inc. has announced plans to exhibit its product line at the American Association of Orthodontists Technology Conference in Las Vegas in February.

Accutech welcomes all orthodontists and industry press to visit Accutech at Booth No. 204 and speak to company representatives.

The conference will take place February 8-10 at the JW Marriott Resort and Spa in Las Vegas. The exhibit hall is located in Marquis Ballroom and will be open on the following days:

* Friday, February 8: 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

* Saturday, February 9: 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

* Sunday, February 10: 9:30 a.m. to noon

During the AAO Technology Conference, Accutech will showcase its orthodontic product line, which includes the Freedom-Lock Appliance System.

Freedom-Lock™ Appliance System
This system can be integrated into multiple types of appliances. Its 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 custom designed "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 RPE delivers superior expansion--it 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.

TAP 3 Appliance
The Thornton Adjustable Positioner 3 Applicance is a mandibular advancement device that improves breathing and eliminates snoring in 95 percent of all patients. 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. The TAP 3 provides doctors numerous options to create the best, customized treatment solution for their patients.
