Same Day Braces

Same Day


Once you decide to transform your smile, you can get started right away with Graf Orthodontics!


You can leave your very first appointment with braces on your teeth, or your custom Spark™ clear aligner scan complete.

Can you get braces the same day as your consultation?

Yes you can! We’re proud to be a ‘same day orthodontist’ in Bossier City, Shreveport, Minden, Natchitoches, Many and Alexandria, so you can get braces the same day as your consultation.


What about Spark™ clear aligners?

If you choose Spark™ clear aligners, we can take a quick digital scan using the advanced iTero scanning device. We’ll then send your clear aligner scan off to have your custom clear aligners fabricated! 

Preparing for same day braces

There are a few requirements you’ll have to fulfill to be a candidate for same day braces. Here’s what you can do to prepare:

  1. Receive a dental cleaning within the last 6 months to a year
  2. Come prepared with your insurance information and preferred payment method
  3. Complete your complimentary consultation with one of our experienced orthodontists, Dr. Graf, Dr. Cloud or Dr. Digney

Your Complimentary Consultation

At your complimentary consultation, your orthodontist will perform a physical exam of your smile, and we’ll take digital x-rays,  and diagnostic photos.


Your orthodontist will use these images to determine your orthodontic needs and create your personalized treatment plan.


The initial exam will take about 40 minutes to complete. Once your orthodontist explains your treatment plan and answers all of your questions, your braces will be ready for placement! You can get Empower® self-ligating (tie-les) braces or clear braces placed on your first visit. 


If you choose Spark™ clear aligners, your teeth will be scanned with our digital iTero® scanner. With this device, we can show you what your new smile could look like at the end of treatment!

Smile With Confidence.
