Hello! Unfortunately, it is impossible to put braces for 1 appointment. But in general, the entire preparation process can really be done in 2 weeks and 2-3 visits. It all depends on the condition of the teeth and the need for additional procedures: caries treatment, removal.
The required stages of preparation for braces are as follows:
Orthodontist consultation. On it, the doctor examines you, takes pictures, collects anamnesis, your wishes for treatment, offers preliminary solutions, gives a referral to a therapist (if there is caries).
Diagnostics includes X-ray images, taking impressions of your dentition, photo protocol. Consultation and diagnostics can be completed in one day.
Preparation of a treatment plan by the doctor. Only based on the results of the diagnosis, the doctor will be able to determine exactly which bracket system is right for you, how long the treatment will take. On average, it takes 1-2 weeks to prepare a treatment plan.
Preparing the oral cavity for the bracket system. During the preparation of the treatment plan, you need to consult a therapist to make sure that there are no caries and other dental lesions and to cure if something is wrong. When the oral cavity is sanitized, you need to go through a professional teeth cleaning. Braces are installed on clean teeth without plaque and tartar, so that there will be no complications and inconveniences during the treatment. Also, your orthodontist can refer you to a surgeon for dental extractions.
After the treatment plan is ready and agreed with you, you can install braces. Some clinics order braces for the patient from the manufacturer without having a stock of kits. Therefore, after agreeing to the treatment, you will need to make an advance payment and wait for the delivery of the braces to the clinic.
If you have chosen individual braces (for example, lingual Incognito or Vin) or aligners, then after prepayment they will be prepared specially for you in the laboratory. This can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 1 month.
What are the stages of installing braces:
First, consultation and pictures, then another visit-installation, then 5-25 days of discomfort, then a month after installation and then every month follow-up visits for modifications. Plus unscheduled, if replacement of elements is required. Enough 2-3 years.
