LightForce™ Braces vs Traditional Braces
Traditional metal braces are based on the size and shape of the average patient’s teeth and are prefabricated as “one-size-fits-all”. This means that the braces used on your teeth are the same exact shape, size, and configuration as every other patient. As a result, orthodontists spend extra months and appointments moving around braces and bending wires to account for variations from the average tooth. “Customization” (for lack of a better word) is done after the fact and is completely freehand.
There is nothing wrong with this traditional approach – this is how orthodontists have been practicing for decades. However, LightForce™ Braces offer a modern, digital solution to make the braces experience even better!
