Lightforce Custom Braces

One Size Fits One™

What are
Lightforce Braces?

LightForce™ Braces are the world’s first 3D printed braces. Using a digital scan of your teeth, the doctor positions them on a computer for optimal function and esthetics. Once this is done, LightForce manufactures clear braces that are designed individually for every tooth with a custom prescription made unique for each patient. They are then 3D printed and sent to our clinic.

Utilizing this technology, our LightForce™ Braces made individually for you!

LightForce Braces vs
Traditional Braces

Traditional metal and clear braces are all stock and prefabricated. This means that the braces we use on your teeth are the same exact shape, size, and configuration as every other patient. It is a “one size fits all” approach and therefore, orthodontists spend extra time at appointments moving around braces and bending wires to try and get the teeth in the ideal position.

LightForce customizes your braces so each bracket is ideal for every tooth. It is like a piece of clothing that is “tailored” just for you. They are also clear for the most aesthetic appearance.

There is nothing wrong with the traditional approach – this is how orthodontists have been practicing for decades. However, LightForce braces offer a modern solution to make the braces experience better!

Most frequent questions and answers
LightForce braces are custom made specifically for your teeth. We take a scan of your mouth, then digitally plan each bracket of your braces individually.
They are similar shapes to regular braces but are a translucent white or clear colour to blend in with your teeth.
Treatment with LightForce is usually slightly faster than regular braces. The individual design of your braces means that a lot of the customization that the doctors do in chairside adjustments is incorporated into the brackets before the braces even go on.
We usually see our LightForce braces patients less frequently than regular braces. An average appointment interval is every 6-8 weeks.
Yes, elastics are still required to correct some bites. You should have elastics in 24/7 and only take them out to eat and to clean your teeth. We recommend changing them 4x/day (usually after each meal + before bed).
Cleaning is just like regular braces. Brush your teeth normally but pay special attention to getting all around the brackets, particularly up near the gums. You should also floss once a day using either superfloss designed specifically for braces or a floss threader that can be used with any regular floss.
Yes, LightForce braces have the same dietary restrictions as regular braces. We will give you a list of foods to avoid. Generally, anything too hard can knock the braces off and anything too sticky can pull them off.
