First, an intra-oral scan of your mouth is completed at your initial consultation appointment. Dr. King then creates a digital treatment plan that is totally customized to your oral care needs. This means that every single tooth movement is pre-programmed from the outset. Using this information, your braces are manufactured utilizing 3D printing to accommodate each tooth’s shape and intended movement. Dr. King is also provided with 3D printed trays that are custom to your teeth to ensure your braces are placed in the exact positions needed for the most efficient and effective treatment.
LightForce Braces are composed of white ceramic. These white brackets provide you with the ability to dress up or dress down. You can also choose clear ligature bands or add a pop of color with colored ligature bands.
Once we’ve submitted your scan, we will also provide a suggested treatment plan within 48 hours to be reviewed by a doctor. Once the treatment plan has been approved, you can expect your braces to come within 4-6 weeks. When they arrive, we will schedule an appointment to place them on your teeth. Bonding the braces to the teeth takes about five minutes.
Luckily, the braces are shipped with a set of backup brackets. We can use these to replace your broken or lost bracket without the need to rescan since the brace is custom-made to your tooth’s anatomy, which does not change.
LightForce Braces offer a superior fit because they are 100% formed to the specific curves of each of your teeth.
There are no specific age ranges for LightForce Braces. Your orthodontist will evaluate your smile and determine which treatment option is best for you.
