The LightForce Braces Process

The LightForce Braces Process


Come In For A Free Consultation

When you visit Piskai Orthodontics for your consultation, we’ll show you around the office before taking complimentary digital x-rays. Dr. Piskai will perform an exam, develop a diagnosis, and walk you through your treatment options. After she answers any questions you have, a team member will go over the cost of LightForce braces, your insurance, and our flexible financing options.

Dr. Piskai Creates Your Digital Treatment Plan

A team member will take quick, comfy digital dental impressions with our iTero® scanner (yup, no gagging on a tray of putty). The scans will be converted into a computerized, 3D model of your mouth. Dr. Piskai will create your personalized treatment plan directly on the model, designing a one-of-a-kind smile that complements your facial features. She’ll even be able to show you a simulation of what your new smile will look like!

Your Custom Braces Are 3D Printed

The LightForce lab will 3D print your custom braces according to Dr. Piskai’s treatment plan. Each bracket will be fabricated to fit its corresponding tooth’s unique shape and intended movement. LightForce will also create custom, 3D-printed indirect bonding trays to streamline the process of getting your braces put on.

Get Your Braces Put On

Your brackets will be arranged in the custom bonding tray, allowing Dr. Piskai to bond multiple brackets to your teeth at once. Once your brackets are in place, Dr. Piskai will put your archwires in and secure them with elastics. We’ll wrap things up by filling you in on everything you need to know about caring for your appliance.

Visit Us For Check-Ups

Your teeth will shift into place as you go about your daily life. While you’ll need fewer office visits over the course of your treatment, you’ll still come in for short check-ups every eight to 10 weeks, so Dr. Piskai can monitor your progress.

Braces Check Up


Show Off Your Stunning Smile

Dr. Piskai will remove your braces, which is just as painless as getting them put on, and let you check out your results in the mirror. After we celebrate the momentous occasion, you’ll receive a beautiful set of clear retainers (plus a complimentary set of backups!) based on a digital scan of your teeth. Wearing your retainers will help you maintain your results for life.
