LightForce 3D-printing technology enables Dr. Wazio and his team to tailor braces to your unique dental anatomy and treatment plan.
The planning process for LightForce braces is entirely digital, so there are no uncomfortable impressions or plaster models to deal with. When you schedule your initial consultation with us, we will complete a comprehensive digital scan of your teeth.
After your teeth are captured by our intraoral scanner, Dr. Wazio positions them on a computer for optimal function and esthetics. Once this is done, LightForce Braces are designed for each tooth with a custom prescription made for your specific orthodontic problem.
The LightForce braces are then manufactured utilizing 3D printing for each of your tooth’s unique shape and intended movement. The brackets can be placed wherever they are needed on the teeth, giving Dr. Wazio total control over the movements they make. This makes treatment faster and more efficient than it is with traditional braces.
Traditional brackets come with a predetermined prescription, but LightForce brackets are patient-specific thanks to the patented 3D-printed technology. The 3D-printed braces provide the strength and precision necessary to successfully move the teeth but are tailored to your dental anatomy. The LightForce system lets Dr. Wazio look at the final tooth positioning from the planning stage, giving you the most optimal results in less time.
LightForce brackets are more discreet than metal braces. They are made from 100% polycrystalline alumina that blends in beautifully with the natural color of your teeth.
