Everyone deserves a healthy and happy smile. At OX Orthodontix®, we’re on a mission to help people get their perfect smile with our premier orthodontic solutions.
At the same time, we’ve always believed in providing our patients with the most effective, efficient, and comfortable treatment solutions. That’s why we’re introducing the most technologically advanced, comfortable, and, most importantly, the only customizable braces in the world – LightForce braces.
What are LightForce Braces
LightForce braces are the world’s first-ever 3D-printed, customized braces. LightForce braces are specially designed with a unique prescription for every patient, resulting in reduced appointments and accelerated treatment time.
LightForce braces are a highly comfortable, custom treatment solution for patients.
LightForce Braces vs. Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are prefabricated, which means that these braces are all the exact same size, shape, and configuration for every patient. Upon getting traditional metal braces, you may be required to visit the clinic numerous times, as your orthodontist spends multiple visits repositioning the brackets on your teeth, as well as bending wires to get the teeth in the correct position throughout the treatment.
- Traditional metal braces don’t take into consideration the unique shapes, structures, and variations of teeth from one individual to another.
- Because LightForce braces are made for the individual, there are less office visits required for repositioning brackets and bending wires.
- The custom brackets fit more closely to each person’s teeth, resulting in less breakage of brackets. While there’s nothing wrong with the traditional approach, LightForce is a modern and more comfortable solution, taking the braces experience to a whole new level.
The LightForce system is comprised of:
- Cloud Brackets
- Light Brackets
Cloud Brackets are the only 3D printed custom ceramic brackets that are available. These brackets are highly customizable and configured based on each patient’s treatment plan. These brackets are made of a clear material, making them less visible on the teeth. Cloud ceramic brackets are also smaller, making them more comfortable for the patient. The brackets are also bonded to the tooth with a new adhesive that is stronger and more durable than the adhesives used with traditional brackets.
LightBracket is an aesthetic option that perfectly blends in with a person’s tooth color. When it comes to its features and benefits, it offers the same as Cloud Bracket does, but it is translucent and even less noticeable than the Cloud Bracket. The braces are used to correct teeth that are misaligned. Made of a clear, plastic material and nearly invisible when worn, they are also more comfortable to wear than metal braces.
LightTrays are 3D-printed, ergonomically designed trays that are customized for each patient. This tray is used when placing the brackets and helps the orthodontist place them with excellent precision. The product is made of clear plastic that is lightweight and comfortable. Easy to put on and take off and can be worn for various occasions, the braces are available in various sizes so that you can find the perfect fit for your teeth.
LightPlan is a world-class digital treatment planning software by LightForce. With LightPlan, your orthodontist will create, adjust, and approve a treatment plan specifically for everyone. LightPlan makes your project more efficient and easier to manage. With that being said, let’s review the benefits of LightForce braces.
The 4 Major Benefits of LightForce Braces
Following are the four major benefits of LightForce braces:
- Highly Customizable
- Fewer Office Visits
- Shorter Treatment Times
Thanks to rapid technological advancements and the rise of 3D printing, LightForce braces are heavily customizable. Unlike traditional metal or braces, LightForce isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach.
Instead, the orthodontist will conduct a digital scan of your teeth and based on that, design your custom treatment plan based on that scan. LightForce braces are built with comfort in mind – which is why they fit a patient’s teeth perfectly – leading to fewer emergencies and office visits.
Fewer Office Visits
With traditional braces, an orthodontist must adjust and tighten them little by little. This often involves multiple office visits and can be expensive over time. Lightforce braces can be adjusted right at home, so you don’t constantly go back and forth to the orthodontist, meaning less time taken out of your busy schedule to make another appointment with the orthodontist.
With LightForce, patients only need an appointment every 6-10 weeks depending on their treatment plan. Even patients who live nearby don’t have to miss school as much using this efficient 100% custom 3D-printed bracket system, according to Oral Health Group.
Shorter Treatment Times
Orthodontists spend numerous office visits repositioning braces and bending wires to get the teeth in the perfect position throughout the treatment. This can result in an extended treatment period.
Because LightForce braces are individualized, they help to accelerate this period and help you get your perfect smile faster than ever before.
Lastly, this treatment solution’s most significant benefit is its comfort. LightForce uses the most sophisticated 3D printing technology to build the highest-quality customized braces – each one is a perfect and unique fit for each patient. Reduced breakages, shorter treatment periods, and fewer office visits. Together these benefits make LightForce braces a fantastic orthodontic treatment solution.
From first-time patients heading to our clinic or interacting with our specialists via video consultation to the conclusion of the treatment, we are laser-focused on delivering an outstanding and, most importantly, a comfortable treatment experience. Our highly experienced and talented team works closely with patients and their families to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding experience.
