LightForce Orthodontic Bracket Identification

LightForce Orthodontic brackets have two notations to aid in identification. Notations may only be visible by loops or other magnification. 

A number (1-5) associated with Palmer Notation is located on the mesial side of the gingival tie-wing. A dot is located on the frontal view of the distal-gingival tie-wing.
