How do Braces actually Work ?
Braces are made of metal or ceramic, wires, and bonding material that attaches them to your teeth. Dental braces (also known as braces, orthodontic cases, or cases) are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth and help position them with regard to a person’s bite, while also aiming to improve dental health. They also help fix gaps. There is no age limit for braces as adults fix braces.
Why do people wear braces on their teeth?

Complications and Risks
You will not feel pain during installation of braces. But wearing and getting used to braces is not a pain free process as many think. While the actual fitting rarely hurts, the new sensations and pressure against your teeth will cause soreness and aching. You may experience sores on the inside of your gums and lips, because the mouth is simply not used to having so much metal or plastic close to the tissues. All of these painful side effects should subside after a couple of weeks. Your dentist will prescribe appropriate painkillers like ibuprofen or diclofenac to help with the pains.
How much does Dental Braces Cost in Nigeria?
The cost of fixing dental braces in Nigeria is quite expensive as it is not also covered by the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS). Fixing dental braces in Nigeria cost around N250,000 to N350,000 Naira.
In the USA, Canada and UK, fixing dental braces cost around $5,000 – $10,000 if you have to pay out of pocket.
Care of Dental braces
After you have had your teeth braces fixed, avoid foods like pop corn, chew gums, chocolate and hard candy that can easily get stuck(trapped) between the braces and your gumline.
While you have braces, you will need to visit the orthodontist(dentist) for an adjustment every 8 to 10 weeks. Your orthodontist will check to make sure that you’re maintaining your oral health and taking care of your braces well as instructed.
