At Hughes Orthodontics, we embrace new technology! We also recognized that no two smiles are identical and there is an incredible value to creating a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your unique orthodontic needs.
We are proud and excited to incorporate "LightForce Orthodontics" into our treatment suite. From tooth scan to production, LightForce is the first truly digital system for braces!
What is LightForce Orthodontics?
This revolutionary program uses 3D printing technology for Dr. Justin Hughes and his team to create custom-fitted braces for patients in order to achieve the goals of their treatment plan.
LightForce's brackets and indirect bonding jigs are 3D printed, to ensure the precision of digital case setup and patient-specific bracket design is fully realized in the actual applications that will be placed on the patients' teeth.
Unlike traditional braces, which are manufactured with a fixed-base shape, LightForce Orthodontics uses state-of-the-art 3D printing technology to create brackets that are as unique as each individual patient.
- Standard brackets have to compensate for mismatches between the bracket base and the shape of a patient’s tooth. LightForce-created brackets can be bonded with a uniformly consistent cement layer.
- LightForce Brackets are designed with patient comfort in mind. LightForce materials and custom base provide the necessary strength to minimize contact with the soft tissues of a patients' gums and mouth
LightForce’s simple and intuitive online interface is designed for fast and efficient treatment planning. The fully digital design provides Dr. Hughes with the ability to make precise adjustments directly on the 3D model and visualize the impact on the finish in real-time.
Additionally, LightForce's platform allows for the fast delivery of the patient’s custom appliances, with a turnaround time of less than two weeks!
