At Hibberd Orthodontics we are proud to offer LightForce Braces. LightForce is a revolutionary braces system where every bracket is custom made to fit the unique shape and contours of each of your individual teeth. This allows us greater control to make truly customized treatment plans that can move teeth with greater precision and more gently. LightForce’s sleek design also features a slim profile and clear ceramic materials that make them some of the best looking and discrete braces available!
How does LightForce work?
Planning for LightForce braces is entirely digital, meaning no uncomfortable impressions or plaster molds. Each bracket is printed to fit the shape of each tooth comfortably and perfectly.
Dr. Christine and Dr. Graeme Hibberd set the bracket position for each and every tooth using digital treatment planning. They can place these brackets in any position on the tooth that is needed, meaning we have complete control of tooth movement often making this orthodontic treatment faster and more efficient than traditional braces. As always with treatment planning, the patient’s entire face and features are taken into account. This includes the patient’s jawline, lips, profile and facial structure (to name a few!)
Here are some of our favourite benefits of LightForce Braces:
More Efficient: LightForce enables Dr. Christine and Dr. Graeme Hibberd to reach new levels of efficiency without sacrificing quality or comfort. This means the overall treatment time is often significantly improved.
Customized for you: Proprietary treatment planning software is combined with advanced 3D printing technology to create custom treatments for every patient. That means you don’t have to worry about ill-fitting brackets and unnecessary setbacks in your treatment.
More comfortable: The slim profile of the brackets not only looks great, but is also more comfortable to wear, reducing discomfort and improving the straightening accuracy. LightForce also uses gentler forces throughout the treatment to achieve results and often requires less adjustments meaning less overall soreness.
Fully Digital Planning: LightForce brings the planning simplicity, efficiency and ease of use typically seen in clear aligner treatment to the world of braces. That means we can design more accurate treatment plans without the need of biting into messy goop.
