Introducing Lightforce: the world's first 3D-printed bracket system with fully customized treatment plans.

Why LightForce?

  • Fewer patient visits, efficient treatments, and a fully digital workflow.
  • Proprietary treatment planning software is combined with advanced 3D printing technology to create custom treatments for every patient.

Clinical Benefits

  • 3D-printed slots are more accurate and precise than injection molded slots, preventing divergence. (i)
  • LightForce treatments start with the final goal in mind, reducing overall “round-tripping.”
  • Torque and tip are expressed more gradually with “light force” via NiTi wires vs. having to engage bent beta-titanium and steel wires.
  • Even partially custom appliances are proven to reduce treatment time, number of appointments, and improve quality of the results. Imagine what fully custom treatment can do. (iv)

Business Benefits

  • Improve profitability per appointment with fewer, shorter duration appointments and increased intervals between appointments.
  • Increase practice capacity and eliminate bracket inventory to match cash flow.
  • LightForce provides the option to empower and delegate bondings, turbos placement and rebonds to staff.
  • Unlike traditional indirect bonding, LightPlan algorithms always match the real base to tooth anatomy, so tooth position (ie. torque) isn’t limited by the extension of a composite base.
