Orthospaceship offers traditional metal braces for Los Angeles

What are custom braces?

LightForce braces mark a groundbreaking milestone as the world’s first-ever 3D printed, personalized braces. Unlike traditional metal braces, which follow a one-size-fits-all approach, LightForce braces are tailored with a unique prescription for each patient, ensuring a customized orthodontic experience.

With traditional metal braces, multiple office visits are often necessary for bracket repositioning and wire adjustments, as they aren’t designed to accommodate the diverse shapes and structures of individual teeth. LightForce braces, however, are crafted specifically for each patient, minimizing the need for frequent adjustments and reducing instances of broken brackets.

LightForce treatment offers a range of personalized solutions, including LightPlan Treatment Software, which enables orthodontists to create precise digital treatment plans for each patient. LightTray Indirect Bonding utilizes 3D-printed trays to ensure precise bracket placement, while Cloud Brackets and Light Brackets offer customizable ceramic options tailored to individual treatment plans.
