Today, you can customize just about anything! From custom suits, to custom computers and cars – the list goes on! The idea of custom braces has been around for a long time. However, it wasn’t until LightForce Braces developed an innovative, patented, 3D-driven, fully custom dental braces with high accuracy and precision – did the idea truly come to life.

Walt Orthodontics is proud to offer LightForce Braces. Did you know we were the first office in Canada to offer this technologically advanced treatment? Dr. Walt also won the MVP award from LightForce at their future meeting in Boston this year!

LightForce Braces are 3D printed and custom made for each patient, providing a level of customization that is unrivaled in the orthodontic industry! Each individual’s smile is different. Each individual tooth is different. LightForce Braces takes all of this into account!

After your teeth are initially captured by our intraoral scanner during your consultation appointmentDr. Walt and Dr. Grossman will position them on a computer for optimal function and esthetics. From there, LightForce™ Braces are designed for every single tooth with a custom prescription made unique for each patient’s condition. They are then 3D printed on machines designed to make parts for jet engines and space travel. Utilizing this technology makes LightForce™ Braces the most advanced braces in the world!

This is different than metal braces or even clear braces, such as Damon braces, which are just mass produced in an “one size fits all” approach.

Walt Orthodontics is committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care possible, and LightForce Braces are a testament to that commitment.

LightForce Braces offer numerous benefits over traditional braces, including shorter treatment times and fewer office visits. They are also more comfortable, due to their customized fit.

LightForce Braces are available for all patients – children, teens and adults all over the Maple-Vaughan-Thornhill community! If you are considering orthodontic treatment, Walt Orthodontics is ready to help! We offer free consultations – both virtual and in person. Contact our office in Vaughan to schedule an appointment and experience LightForce Braces for yourself!
