May 12, 2015

Sheboygan, Wisconsin – American Orthodontics is proud to introduce a broad range of product enhancements during the 2015 AAO Annual Session in San Francisco. These improvements are all driven by AO’s dedication to continuous improvement and the needs of the orthodontic professional.

Luno Instruments Launched
AO’s newest instrument line is crafted from American-forged steel to resist corrosion, and deliver dependable performance and a premium experience. Luno is available in a wide range of cutters, benders, and specialty pliers.

PowerScope Class II Corrector Enhancements
American Orthodontics’ dedication to continuous improvement has led to several recent enhancements to the PowerScope Class II Corrector. The appliance will now feature a prominent laser marking ID for quick and easy activation, and an improved screw and attachment mechanism for increased durability against patient abuse during treatment. A magnetic hex head driver for safely installing the appliance will also soon be available.
AO will provide live PowerScope demonstrations at their AAO booth every hour on the hour.

Empower BX Lower Premolar Pads
Empower’s new BX Lower Premolar Pads feature an improved fit and stronger bond. The pads have an excellent fit on the tooth surface, are 6% larger than standard pads, and have the same tooth ID as other Empower metal brackets. A new modified, thicker clip also helps wire seating, and the clip’s new middle prong helps suppress wire during closing and provides a visual cue to ensure the clip is fully closed.

Blue Ray 3 Curing Light Enhancements
Blue Ray 3, the original orthodontist’s curing light, will now be available in both brushed stainless steel and polished black finish. Blue Ray 3 is also now covered by a 3-year warranty on the hand piece, battery, and charging base.

New Arch Forms for Tanzo Premium Heat Activated Arch Wire
Tanzo Premium Heat Activated Arch Wire is crafted from Copper Nickel Titanium, and delivers consistent forces that allow controlled tooth movement and predictable results. Tanzo is now available in Form A medium and large arch forms, Natural Arch Form I, III, and VLP arch forms.
