Dental Hygiene/Hi!

Question
Hi! I just want to ask if I could have my cavities filled and get braces at the same day? Hoping for your reply, thank you!

Answer
It might be possible but is unlikely to happen.  Some filling materials might not become completely cured and strong enough to withstand the stress of some new procedures of putting braces on.  

However, I think it could be arranged to do the braces the same day if that were important to you.
