3D Printed Personalized Treatment

We are thrilled to offer our patients LightForce brackets, the latest and most advanced orthodontic technology. These brackets are personalized to fit your unique tooth surface using patented 3D printing technology, ensuring a perfect fit for maximum effectiveness.

Traditional brackets are mass-produced to fit everyone, but LightForce brackets are created specifically for you. This approach leads to shorter treatment times and fewer office visits, as ideal outcomes can be achieved more efficiently. You can spend less time away from school or extracurricular activities and more time doing the things you enjoy.

Moreover, LightForce brackets conform precisely to your teeth, providing a more comfortable and efficient treatment experience. This level of precision can reduce discomfort and improve the accuracy of your teeth straightening process.

At Dr. Dabney's office, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the best possible care. That's why we trust LightForce brackets, which are designed to fit your unique teeth for a more personalized, efficient, and comfortable treatment experience.

Lightforce Company History

Dr. Alfred Griffin III's research during the 2015 Boston blizzard led him to a game-changing breakthrough in 3D printing. After three years of research and development, Dr. Griffin successfully created a 3D printed bracket made of ceramic polycrystalline alumina - a first in the industry.

To transform the industry, Dr. Griffin teamed up with Dr. Lou Shuman, a senior executive at Invisalign® during its early stages of hyper-growth, and a successful entrepreneur/CEO himself. With the help of key biomechanical engineers, hardware engineers, and software developers, the LightForce team brought a depth of experience in developing advanced dental systems.

In 2019, the company received formal FDA clearance and officially launched its complete system at the 2019 AAO Annual Session. LightForce's headquarters moved from Cambridge to Burlington in 2021, allowing for significant expansion in office and production space to accommodate the growing team.

In 2022, LightForce received the AAO Innovator Award, solidifying its position as a leading innovator in the orthodontic industry. At Dr. Dabney's office, we trust LightForce to provide our patients with the latest and most advanced orthodontic technology for personalized, efficient, and comfortable treatment experiences.
