Accutech Orthodontic Lab's Freedom-Lock rapid palatal expander 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.
The hinge mechanism locks in by design, and the flat locking clasp provides for retention of the appliance system. Freedom-Lock also delivers superior expansion by pushing from the lingual and pulling from the buccal simultaneously. When the expansion is complete, the appliance is removed and the bands can remain for continued treatment.
