Bracket Optimizations

LightForce introduces three bracket optimizations outlined below.

How does this help me better serve my patients?

The breakaway base improvements add to the stability of the breakaway mechanism reducing the rate of premature fractures.  

The tapered tie wings make ligation easier and increase ligation options.  Increased rounding of tie-wing edges reduces the likelihood that elastics will tear.



The improvements to the bracket trenches will increase adhesive retention and increase bond strength. 

How do I get it?

These features will be included in all new case submission and reorders placed on or after February 1, 2023. 

How does it impact my practice?

The LightForce bracket improvements provide increased patient comfort, ease of ligation and improved functionality.  This also reduces the amount of non-LightForce products needed to utilize to achieve an ideal result.
