LightForce™ 3D braces
Completely customised braces
At Auckland Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on providing the most innovative and advanced treatments to our patients. LightForce™ 3D braces are the latest advancement in orthodontic technology, and they make your treatment more efficient than ever.
What are LightForce™ 3D braces?
LightForce™ 3D braces are the first fully customised, 3D-printed bracket system. Dr Raniga has control over the shape, size, and placement of each individual bracket, and will tailor your treatment to make it as efficient and accurate as possible.
Once your brackets have been designed, we will 3D-print them to match the colour of your teeth. This makes LightForce™ treatment incredibly discreet.
How do LightForce™ 3D braces work?
LightForce™ 3D braces use a system of brackets, archwires, and elastics to shape your smile – just like traditional metal braces. But LightForce™ braces require fewer adjustment appointments since each bracket is tailored to your smile.
When you come in for your consultation with Dr Raniga, he can use our digital scanner to make an accurate model of your teeth and jaws. This model will help him to design your bespoke LightForce™ brackets.
You will visit us for adjustment appointments throughout treatment where Dr Raniga will make small bends in your archwires. This will add gentle but targeted pressure that will guide your smile into proper alignment.
Benefits of LightForce™ 3D braces
LightForce™ 3D braces are a great option for many patients because they are:
- Efficient: Because each bracket is completely customised, you can expect much faster treatment times and fewer necessary adjustments.
- Discreet: LightForce™ brackets can be printed to match the shade of each individual tooth, helping them blend in with your smile.
- Versatile: LightForce 3D™ braces work for patients of all ages and for issues from simple to complex.
- Accurate: We will plan your LightForce™ treatment from start to finish using our cutting-edge computer technology, so we know precisely what your results will look like.
