LightForce introduces a revolutionary approach to fixed-appliance treatment. Bringing digital precision to bracket-based treatment, LightForce generates a 100% customized prescription for each patient.
Each bracket is created from the base up, individually designed and fabricated based on each patient’s anatomy, tooth morphology and treatment goals. It’s then printed in a proprietary polycrystalline material and shipped to you in just 7 to 10 business days.
LightForce brings the full power of the digital process into fixed appliances. The digitally customized prescription can improve precision, predictability and clinical outcomes. Plus, by creating a biomechanically precise prescription for each patient, LightForce can eliminate treatment inefficiencies such as round tripping and repositioning. This can help control overhead and incidental expenses all while delivering an exceptional and predictable patient experience.
CLINICAL USE CASE
The orthodontist has complete freedom of bracket positioning as a result of a 100% customized base. In the example shown below, a bracket can be bonded towards the mesial or distal surface of a tooth and retain the intended straight-wire programing and prescription, with an exact and stable fit.
The system dynamically adjusts the bracket programming as the final position is realized.
