Braces (In One Day)

Same-day braces, one-day braces, or instant braces are orthodontic treatments that aim to straighten teeth and transform smiles. With same-day braces at Lawless Orthodontics, the orthodontic brackets and wires are placed on the teeth in a single first appointment, allowing you to begin your teeth straightening journey immediately.

One of the critical advantages of same-day braces is the convenience of having the braces put on during your first visit. Traditionally, patients require multiple appointments before starting their braces treatment. Same-day braces, on the other hand, make it possible to start your treatment straight away.

Braces at Lawless Orthodontics

At Lawless Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality orthodontic treatment to our patients. That's why we offer Self-Ligating Braces as our primary choice for braces. The use of clips instead of traditional rubber bands allows for quicker and easier adjustments, ensuring a more comfortable experience for our patients. Additionally, the low-profile design with sculpted edges creates a smoother surface against your cheeks and lips, making them less noticeable and easier to maintain proper oral hygiene around.

Regardless of age, braces can be an excellent option to achieve straighter teeth and improve overall dental health. With appointments ranging from 15 to 30 minutes every six to eight weeks and a typical treatment duration of six to 24 months, depending on case severity, our team is committed to providing personalized care that meets each patient's individual needs.

What Is the Difference Between Traditional and Self-Ligating Braces?

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, there are two main types of braces: traditional and self-ligating. The primary difference between these two options lies in the mechanism that holds the archwire in place. Traditional braces use brackets, archwires, and rubber bands to straighten teeth.

Traditional braces can be less comfortable than their self-ligating counterparts due to the higher levels of friction caused by the presence of rubber bands - which also trap food particles leading to plaque buildup and decay over time. On the other hand, self-ligating braces utilize specially designed clips instead of rubber bands for holding the wire in place, which allows for a more efficient cleaning process and causes less pressure on teeth while being thinner and smaller - making them less noticeable overall too. <.p>

Additionally, because there's no need for elastic ties with this type of brace system, patients may experience quicker results in terms of treatment times compared with those utilizing traditional ones, where additional adjustments may be needed over several months or years depending upon individual cases.

The Benefits of Same-Day Braces

Faster Treatment Time

Same-day braces allow you to start treatment immediately, shortening the time it takes to complete it.


With same-day braces, patients can begin their orthodontic treatment immediately and may require fewer appointments overall, making this a more convenient option.

Improved Aesthetics

Same-day braces use tooth-colored brackets and wires less noticeable than traditional metal braces, making patients feel more confident and less self-conscious during treatment.


Same-day braces use advanced technology and techniques that can reduce discomfort during treatment and may minimize the need for extractions or other invasive procedures.

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.

If you're considering same-day braces, it's essential to consult with an orthodontist who can evaluate your individual needs and recommend the best treatment plan for you.
