Can I Get Braces On My First Visit?

Visit a Orthodontist

Before your braces are officially put, a few procedures are carried out during your first sessions. As the process of wearing braces requires several sessions with your orthodontist, patience is a must. You may be wondering how many visits there are before receiving braces.

To acquire braces, you may need to make one or more visits with the orthodontist. The kind of case, dental health, and treatment strategy all affect how many visits are necessary. You may need to make many visits if you need to have a spacer or a tooth extracted before getting braces.

Before obtaining braces, you should visit the orthodontist’s office at least once for a consultation and any pre-treatments.

The Following are the Usual Steps:

  • See the orthodontist for a free consultation.
  • Your orthodontist will go through your dental condition along with the cost of your treatment with either you or your parents.
  • During your second visit, separators (sometimes called tooth spacers) will be inserted between your rear molars.
  • Before your subsequent visit, these separators will be left in place to provide room between your teeth.
  • At the third appointment, bands are affixed to the spaces your separators produced.
  • If you don’t need bands, your dentist could put the braces on during your third session, or they might wait until your next appointment.
  • Ask any questions you may have, such as “Do braces hurt?” during your first session along with any other questions that come to mind.


Your free examination to evaluate your objectives and choose the best course of action will be given to you during your first appointment at Tringas Orthodontics, where you will also be introduced to our office and staff so that you are more comfortable on your next visit. To see both the above and below-the-surface modifications required to align your bite and improve your smile, we take photos and an x-ray. 

Our experts do a complete examination to evaluate your bite, jaw function, tooth size, shape, dental & soft tissue health, and evaluate the aesthetics of your smile. We may then discuss treatment progression and address any concerns about insurance and cost at that time.

When they first see us, many of our patients are not prepared to begin orthodontic treatment. To begin treatment, we may need to wait for permanent teeth to emerge. Patients who use Invisalign (invisible braces) to straighten their teeth get their aligner trays on their second appointment since the mouthpieces are produced specifically for each patient’s unique bite and treatment strategy using 3-D mouth scans. With Invisalign, patients of all ages may get orthodontic treatment.
