LightForce or Invisalign – which option do I choose?

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, there are various options available to help you achieve the smile you want. Two of the many forms of treatment provided at Mehta Orthodontics are LightForce Braces and Invisalign Aligners. Both treatment methods offer effective solutions in correcting your smile, but which method is the right choice for you?

LightForce braces utilise 3D-printing technology and computer-aided design to provide a customised treatment experience to our patients. The actual bracket itself is personalised to the shape of each tooth, unlike traditional braces.

Invisalign offers a discrete and removable alternative to traditional braces. These clear aligners are custom-made to fit snuggly over your teeth, gently guiding the teeth into the desired position.

Factors to consider when making your decision:

  1. Treatment complexity: if you have complex orthodontic issues, LightForce braces may be the better choice for you, as they offer a high level of customisation, versatility and contact to the tooth.
  2. Aesthetics and lifestyle: if you prefer a discrete treatment option and the flexibility to remove your braces, then Invisalign may be the direction you are leaning towards.

Choosing the best treatment option for you

It’s important to note that neither LightForce Braces nor Invisalign Aligners are inherently superior to the other. The choice ultimately depends on your individual needs, preferences, and lifestyle. Dr Mehta and his team can evaluate your specific orthodontic issues to find which treatment is most suitable for you.
