In brief: Begins with decision

Before placing braces, a thorough examination and then study of certain x-ray imaging are required.
A detailed diagnosis is made and a plan formulated. Once presented to you and you decide to go ahead: the process of placing them is quite painless and usually takes less than an hour. Enjoy your smile!

In brief: Putting on braces

The process is quite easy.
You simply dry the mouth and keep it dry. Place glue on the teeth and put the bracket (brace) on the tooth. You line the bracket up to where it should be and then shine a bright light on the tooth to harden the glue. It doesn't hurt. You don't need shots and it's painless.

In brief: See below

Different doctors may have different processes to go through.
Usually a comprehensive exam is done, special x-rays taken, clearance that all dental decay has been taken care of as well as any gum disease and then the process can begin.
