The Procedure for Same-Day Braces
Our orthodontist will evaluate the patient's teeth and jaw to determine if they are a good candidate for same-day braces. They will take X-rays and impressions of the teeth and may use computer imaging to create a digital model of the patient's mouth.
The orthodontist will apply brackets to the teeth and attach wires that gently guide the teeth into the desired position. The brackets may be pre-made or custom-fitted to the patient's teeth, depending on the system used. The orthodontist will make any necessary adjustments to the brackets and wires to ensure proper alignment and movement of the teeth. They may use special tools or techniques to facilitate faster tooth movement.
The patient must return to the orthodontist periodically for adjustments and to monitor progress. Same-day braces may, in some cases, require more frequent visits due to the faster rate of tooth movement. Once the teeth have been moved into the desired position, the braces will be removed. The orthodontist may recommend a retainer to help maintain the new position of the teeth.
