In brief: Can you tell me...

Can you tell me your problem? Everyone's different.
You can't buy braces off the shelf in a hardware store. Ask your orthodontic specialist for information that pertains to your individual problem, which will be different than the next patient and the one after that.

In brief: Typically there is

The consultation appointment.
If the patient agrees, then records can often be taken at the same appointment. If not a second appointment is for records and the following appointment to get started. Every case is unique, so consult with your orthodontist. Hope this helps.

In brief: All Depends

Orthodontic treatment normally requires a consultation visit, a visit to get beginning orthodontic records, a visit to place seporators/sign consent/hipaa/contract, and a visit for appliance placement.
Each office operates differently.
