3D Printed Braces – Available in Vancouver
Advancements in technology have revolutionized many industries, including orthodontics.
Introducing LightForce braces – the world’s first fully customized 3D printed braces.
LightForce, the most technologically advanced orthodontic system is now available at Smile’s Orthodontics in North Vancouver.
The World’s First 3D Printed Braces
While traditional metal braces have been used to successfully straighten smiles for decades in most patients, LightForce braces represent an entirely new category in orthodontic technology.
They are the first braces uniquely designed and 3D printed just for you.
Using advanced 3D modeling, LightForce braces are custom-made to precisely fit each patient’s teeth. The braces feature tooth-specific brackets that are optimally positioned on each tooth to enable the most efficient and accurate tooth movements.
LightForce braces have much faster treatment times and better treatment results.
What are LightForce Braces?
LightForce custom braces are made with a proprietary material, a special polymer, that is 3D printed using high-resolution stereolithography technology. This proprietary material produces custom braces that are comfortable and specifically designed around your unique tooth anatomy with braces that perfectly fit your teeth.
Unlike mass-produced traditional braces that use one-size-fits-all brackets, LightForce braces feature brackets that are designed to attach to each of your individual teeth exact position them in the optimal position needed to straighten your smile.
These custom LightForce brackets, along with the technologically advanced superelastic archwires, provide constant light force to move your teeth. This enables faster and more comfortable tooth movement with fewer appointments required.
LightForce Braces Vs. Traditional Braces (Metal Braces)
While both the LightForce system and traditional braces successfully straighten a patient’s teeth, there are some key differences:
LightForce braces are individually designed brackets and 3D printed for each patient.
Traditional braces use generic brackets.
LightForce braces position brackets based on your exact position and tooth anatomy for optimal force delivery.
Traditional braces use a general bracket placement.
LightForce braces produce faster and more precise tooth movement leading to more benefits and fewer appointments for patients.
Treatment with traditional braces is still effective but slower for most patients.
Custom-fit LightForce braces makes treatment more comfortable.
Traditional brackets can sometimes irritate cheeks.
LightForce braces are less visible. Traditional metal braces are more noticeable.
Overall, LightForce represents a major advancement in orthodontic technology.
The custom design process leads to faster, more comfortable, and better orthodontic patient outcomes.
