LIGHTFORCETM BRACES



We have decided to “up” our braces game at Walt Orthodontics by offering LightForceTM Braces—the most technologically advanced braces in the world. We were the first office in Canada to be able to offer these custom braces! See below on how LightForceTM Braces and Walt Ortho can give you a truly bespoke smile


WHAT ARE LIGHTFORCETM BRACES?

THE WORLD’S FIRST 3D PRINTED BRACES

Below explains what are LightForceTM braces, their benefits, and if you’re a good fit.

LightForceTM Braces are the world’s first 3D printed braces. After your teeth are initially captured by our intraoral scanner at your consultation appointment, Dr. Walt positions them on a computer for optimal function and esthetics. Once this is done, LightForceTM 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 LightForceTM Braces the most advanced braces in the world!

LightForceTM Braces are made from a white, 3D printed ceramic. A lot of patients love the white brackets because they can be dressed down or up. For those seeking a more esthetic option, clear ligature bands can be placed around the brackets. For those wanting to accessorize with colours, the contrast of white and a coloured elastic ligature really make the elastics “pop.”

LIGHTFORCETM BRACES VS TRADITIONAL BRACES

SEE WHAT LIGHTFORCE WILL ENTAIL DURING YOUR TREATMENT PLAN.

Traditional metal, clear, and even self-ligating braces are all stock and prefabricated. This means that the braces we use on your teeth are the same exact shape, size, and configuration as every other patient. It is a “one size fits all” approach and therefore, orthodontists spend countless extra months and appointments moving around braces and bending wires to try and get the teeth in the right position after the fact. “Customization” (for lack of a better word) is done after the fact and is completely freehand. Traditional braces do not take into consideration the unique shape of your individual teeth. It’s kind of like buying a suit off the rack and having to go to a tailor to adjust it for your body.

There is nothing wrong with this traditional approach—this is how orthodontists have been practicing for decades. However, LightForceTM Braces offer a modern solution to make the braces experience better!
