LightForce Orthodontics Revolutionises Dental Braces By Customized 3D Printed Bracket System

Dr. Alfred Griffin, founder and CEO of the LightForce Orthodontics, a Start-up created on the idea of creating Patient-Specific Brackets using 3D Printing, aims at evolving with the Orthodontics industry and provide better innovative ideas in the field. Alfred created a patented system for 3D printed Orthodontic Treatment Brackets, using material nearly identical to injection modelled ceramic brackets, but formulated specifically for 3D printing.
