Picture this: You've just gotten home from a long day at the practice when you get a call that a patient's bracket has broken off. What do you do? With LightForce, a break doesn't have to derail your day. Our custom-built, easy-to-use rebond IDB trays enable orthodontists to delegate rebonding to staff while ensuring that brackets are attached precisely every time.
In a recent episode of the Illuminate Orthodontics podcast, LightForce’s CEO Alfred Griffin sat down with Dr. Chris Cetta. Over a couple of Manhattans, they discuss how Dr. Griffin became interested in orthodontics, the birth of LightForce, and some of the biggest challenges and growth moments the company has experienced over the past year.
There is now a way to evolve to a totally orthodontic digital workflow for a smooth and efficient practice. The LightForce system, with a similar digital workflow to clear aligners, can simplify your processes, save time, and even lead to more predictability of treatment.
Dr. Robert Miller’s orthodontic practice philosophy is to offer patients orthodontic options that fit their needs and lifestyles. InBrace and LightForce are complementary choices for fixed appliances that appeal to the majority of his patients. InBrace’s lingual system and Lightforce’s labial system with fully custom 3D-printed bracket and wire technology both bring accuracy and detail; one from the lingual side and one from the labial. With both methods founded on digital technology, InBrace appeals to patients who absolutely want invisible braces, and LightForce is also a highly esthetic, accurate, and effective choice.
Ormco Insignia was a pioneer of customization, and LightForce has improved that concept to 100% customization, with each component 3D printed with the other in mind.
The digital platform of LightForce and their fully custom bracket system brings a consistent and beneficial orthodontic digital workflow to the practice, and patients who need braces can derive the same time-saving and convenience benefits as aligner patients. Learn how orthodontists are transforming their practices with our digital platform and fully customized 3D-printed orthodontic technology.
While there are some types of braces in the market with custom aspects, created by welding or extra composite, LightForce customized braces are created with 3D-printing technology that results in the only true custom braces system — one size fits one — providing true personalization in 3D bracket technology. By offering 3D-printed brackets that can adapt to every change in tooth position, treatment can be carried out with precision and accuracy. LightForce provides cost-effective custom dental braces that differentiate the orthodontist from the competition.
Contemporary, busy patients are seeking shorter treatment times, reduced number of office visits, and customization for their particular needs. These requirements make LightForce’s capability for 3D printing in orthodontics literally a perfect fit and the answer to their search. With seamless integration into already established digital protocols, the LightForce system increases efficiency per case. Because of the customized fit of the 3D-printed brackets, patients need fewer and shorter visits. Because the bracket is placed specific to tooth anatomy, the orthodontist can delegate to the staff member, taking even less “doctor time.
Decisions, decisions. Braces or aligners? SureSmile or LightForce? For orthodontists who want to differentiate themselves as tech savvy and dedicated to patients’ needs and requests, integrating both LightForce and SureSmile digital technologies are the key to totally individualized treatment. These complementary treatment modalities make planning easy and efficient — and even better, offer a gamut of treatment capabilities to satisfy every patient’s needs. Learn how orthodontists are transforming their practices with LightForce’s fully customized 3D printed tooth-moving technology.
The LightForce team is just completing its Fall 2019 launch tour.

Recently, LightForce Orthodontics had a chance to sit down with, Director of Hardware Engineering at LightForce, Kelsey Fafara. In our world today, it’s no secret that the representation of women in scientific fields is falling short. Kelsey is a great example of how this doesn’t necessarily have to be the case.
