No, braces are not put on during your first appointment with your orthodontist. There are a few steps to be taken during initial appointments before your braces are actually applied. These steps are as follows:
During your first appointment, separators (also known as spacers) will be placed between your back molars. These will create enough space between your teeth to accommodate bands, which will be inserted during your next appointment. During your first appointment you can also ask any questions that you may have like, “do braces hurt,” or, “is there a down payment on braces?”
This appointment is separate from your free consultation, during which your mouth will be examined, the state of your teeth will be explained, and a financial overview of your treatment plan will be discussed.
