We use the latest iTero scanning and digital X-rays, with the scanner playing an important role in making 3D digital impressions.
How Does LightForce Work?
The main aspects of the process involved in using LightForce braces are as follows:
- It is an entirely digital process
- There is no need for impressions or plaster molds
- We will take digital scans of your mouth and teeth to create the 3D printed, custom brackets. These brackets are then placed wherever they are required on your tooth to enable proper movement.
- These brackets are made of a special material known as polycrystalline alumina. This material is even more discreet than your traditional braces.
- We will take a comprehensive digital scan of your teeth. The scan is then used for designing your custom brackets for each tooth.
- The system will also consider your lips, jawline, and facial features to help create a smile that is perfect for your face.
About the LightForce System
The LightForce system has multiple components that work together to create a kind of digital orthodontic efficiency that deliver braces that work smarter. These key components of this system include:
3D Printed Brackets
The 3D-printed ceramic polycrystalline alumina brackets are customized to the anatomy and bite of each individual tooth. There are two styles of brackets:
- Cloud Bracket: These are white-colored and offer greater discreetness than metal brackets. Many of our patients prefer using colored elastic bands to create a neon-like effect.
- Light Bracket: These brackets are more suited for patients seeking more aesthetical treatment. They are translucent, just like other ceramic braces.
The LightTray bonding system is a 3D printed indirect bonding tray that is specific for each patient. It works only with LightForce brackets. These ergonomically designed trays offer unparalleled accuracy in terms of placement. Additional elements include the LightForce Bite TurboTrays that assist with bite correction. They are placed on either the tongue side or the lingual side of the teeth and help with aligning an open bite. They can also help prevent damage to specific teeth when adjusting the bite.
The LightForce system is controlled by a web-based software known as LightPlan. It provides a simple and intuitive platform for Dr. Tania to create, adjust, and finalize treatment options. This system enables perfect adjustments for each patient and each tooth.
Benefits of Using LightForce Braces
There are many advantages of using the LightForce system for your orthodontic treatment. Some of the most important of these benefits that help this system stand out are as follows:
High Level of Customization
The use of 3D printing and the latest technological advancements enable the high degree of customization that is possible with Lightforce braces in Parkland, FL. This technology doesn’t follow the one-size-fits-all approach that is typical to traditional metal and other forms of braces.
Our orthodontist will perform a digital scan of your teeth and create a custom treatment plan based on the scan. These braces are designed with comfort as one of the most important priorities. This is why there are fewer emergencies involved and you can look forward to fewer office visits.
Shorter Treatment Times
Traditional braces require orthodontists to spend multiple office visits adjusting the braces and wires to bring your teeth in the perfect position throughout the duration of the treatment. Lightforce braces provide individualized treatment right to the individual tooth. This enables faster treatment, allowing you to get the perfect smile much earlier than what was possible with previous treatments.
Fewer Office Visits
When you choose the LightForce system with Parkland Orthodontics, it will not be required to make many adjustments. This means fewer trips to our office. So, the high level of precision offered by this treatment also translates into more time savings. You will not have to take more breaks from your work or busy life schedule to make multiple appointments. When digital planning, customized orthodontic treatment, and fewer office visits combine together, we are able to offer a kind of treatment experience that offers great value to our patients for the time they spend.
As mentioned above, comfort is one of the biggest benefits of choosing LightForce system with us. The system uses advanced 3D printing technology for building the highest-quality, custom braces.

- Lesser chances of breakages
