Life With Braces

Can be Really Awesome


Having braces is much more comfortable than it used to be, especially when you get your braces at Maginnis Orthodontics. That’s because Dr. Maginnis offers many of the latest technologies designed to make orthodontics better than ever.

The first few days after each appointment there here might be some general tenderness of your teeth and mouth. Your teeth might even feel a little loose (after all – they’re on the move. You may want to take some form of pain reliever (what you would normally take for a headache) during this time. Tenderness usually subsides within a few days.

Types of Braces We Offer


Types of Braces We Offer

Metal Braces

Metal braces are one of the most effective types of braces because they are the cheapest option, and are easy for an orthodontist to control when correcting your teeth. Metal braces, also known as traditional braces, come in a range of colors, allowing people with braces to make their smiles pop.

Self-ligating Braces

The only difference between self-ligating braces and metal braces is that self-ligating braces use clips or brackets to adjust and correct your teeth rather than rubber bands placed around the brackets, and it’s easier to clean your teeth. Self-ligating braces also make your orthodontist visits quicker and less painful.

3M Clarity Brackets

3M Clarity Brackets are clear braces, made of ceramic material, which is less noticeable than traditional braces. The clear feature does not hold stains and resists discoloration over the course of your treatment. This option does not require a longer metal slot liner, so there is less metal waste!
