Student Braces Package

Full-time students, including those enrolled in tertiary institutions like polytechnics and universities, are eligible for student rates on braces at Figs Dental.

Affordable Braces for Students

Having straight teeth not only enhances your appearance but also contributes to various benefits to your oral health. Well-aligned teeth make brushing and flossing easier, preventing cavities and gum disease. Additionally, straight teeth can improve speech and reduce the risk of sleep apnea. Figs Dental offers a variety of teeth-straightening options, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs.

How do braces work?

Braces operate by applying continuous pressure to teeth, encouraging them to move into the correct position. This pressure is exerted by the archwire, a thin metal wire threaded through brackets bonded to the teeth. Elastic bands or ties secure the archwire in place. The duration of teeth movement with braces varies, taking several months to several years based on the severity of misalignment. With proper care, braces can effectively straighten teeth and enhance your smile.

Benefits & Side Effects

The benefits of wearing student braces

Wearing student braces addresses various dental alignments such as crowded teeth, open bite, crossbite, overbite, underbite, spaced teeth, and crooked teeth. It results in a more confident personality, allowing you to smile confidently and corrects difficulties in chewing caused by misaligned teeth. At the end of the treatment period, you can look forward to a better smile and appearance.

The temporary inconveniences of student braces

While wearing braces may cause temporary discomfort, such as pain, soreness, and sensitivity, especially at the beginning, it is a temporary inconvenience that leads to a lifetime of improved oral health and a more confident smile. Eating restrictions may apply to avoid damaging braces or making it difficult to clean teeth. Proper dental care, including thorough brushing twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, is essential. Consider using an interdental brush or water flosser to clean between teeth.


Braces require special tooth care

Teeth Brushing

Dentists recommend brushing your teeth twice a day. However, individuals with braces should brush their teeth after every meal to remove plaque and food particles that can build up around the braces. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, placing the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and gently brushing along the gum line. Pay extra attention to hooked braces, as these areas are more likely to collect plaque. Rinse your mouth thoroughly after brushing. If unable to brush after every meal, carry a toothbrush and toothpaste for prompt brushing.

Choosing Toothbrushes

Any soft-bristled toothbrush is suitable for individuals with braces. An electric toothbrush with a circular oscillating head may be more effective at removing plaque. Use fluoride toothpaste to strengthen enamel, preventing plaque. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, consider using a desensitizing toothpaste

Use mouthwash

Use a fluoride mouthwash for one minute after brushing your teeth at night to help prevent cavities. Mouthwash after meals is unnecessary.


Floss daily to remove food particles and plaque from between your teeth and braces. Use gentle pressure when flossing.

Easy with the Right Food
