Question do i need to get fillings before i get braces?

I am thinking about getting braces adn before I go to teh ortho
i was wondering if i should first make an appointment with my
regular dentist to get my cavities filled. Or if i can do that later
after my braces come off or while i have the braces on?
Any help is appreciated.Thanks.

YES YES YES!! Get your fillings taken care of before you get braces. Your orthodontist will tell you the same thing.

PLEASE get a cleaning and any fillings done BEFORE you get braces put on. As toothfairy28 said, any orthodontist (any GOOD orthodontist, anyway) would recommend the same. It's always best to start ortho treatment on clean, cavity-free teeth.
