What Are LightForce Braces?

LightForce braces are the first braces that utilize modern 3D-printing technology, and digital planning to create a strong orthodontic treatment plan. LightForce braces use digital models that are taken from a digital scan instead of creating an impression of your teeth. This scan is then used to correctly match the unique shape and size of each individual tooth. This orthodontic treatment is an excellent alternative to metal braces, because it allows for a more personalized solution, and can even sometimes lower the number of orthodontist visits you would need to be making.

This cutting-edge technology allows our team at SKS Orthodontics to be able to better predict the outcome of your treatment, and make the braces more customized for you and your teeth.

LightForce System

What makes up the LightForce system? Well, the LightForce System is made up of five easy parts:

  • LightForce brackets: These ceramic brackets are fully customizable, even allowing you to customize based on bite and tooth size. Another great part about these brackets is that they also offer different color options. Whether you want your braces to pop with fun, vibrant colors, or you want to go for a more subtle look with translucent brackets, there are options for everybody.
  • LightTray: This 3D-printed tray is an indirect bonding tray used to make sure that the braces are placed accurately. This tray makes bonding the brackets that much easier. 
  • LightForce Bite TurboTrays: These trays, similar to LightTray’s, are used to aid in bite correction for patients. These trays are usually placed on the incisors, canines, or molars. The placement lowers the amount of discomfort a patient could feel, making the process smooth and seamless. 
  • Buccal Tubes: These 3D-printed buccal tubes are for the first and second-year molars, used to ensure that the wire application is done efficiently and effectively. Since these tubes are customizable as well, it allows for more flexibility and more reliable placement.
  • LightPlan System: This is a digital planning software that is used to create your treatment plan.

The LightPlan System

One of the other amazing benefits of using LightForce braces is their digital planning software, LightPlan. LightPlan allows our team to create and adjust your treatment plan as necessary, all with a simple click, adding that additional personalized touch to your dental care.
