Types of Treatments

Metal Braces

Elgin Orthodontics Coos Bay OregonTraditional metal braces are still the gold standard of orthodontic treatment. They are made of advanced stainless steel alloys and bonded directly to the enamel of the teeth. A great option for many people!

Clear/ Ceramic Braces

Elgin Orthodontics Coos Bay OregonClear braces combine the power and control of traditional braces with improved aesthetics. These high-tech braces are made of polycrystalline sapphire. Since they are translucent and tooth colored, they minimize the appearance of the braces when you talk, smile, and laugh.

Elastics

Elgin Orthodontics Coos Bay OregonAlmost everybody will need to wear elastics, or “rubber bands,” at some point during their treatment. While the braces or aligners straighten your teeth, the elastics will pull your teeth together in the right direction to correct the bite.

Clear Aligners

Elgin Orthodontics Coos Bay OregonClear aligners, such as Invisalign®, consist of a series of clear plastic trays that snap in over the teeth. They are custom made for each patient in a sophisticated CAD/CAM process using a computer projection of how your teeth are expected to move. Clear aligners offer the ultimate in aesthetics and convenience.

Space Maintainers

Space maintainers are used when a baby tooth is lost early, to hold onto the space for the permanent tooth to erupt.

Palatal Expanders

Palatal expanders are used to widen an upper jaw that is too narrow relative to the lower jaw.

Retainers

Retainers are worn to keep the teeth from shifting after the braces or aligners are done.

Functional Appliances

These correct bite issues that result from a lower jaw that is too small. They work by positioning the lower jaw forward into the correct bite, thereby encouraging the forward growth of the lower jaw while holding back the upper jaw. Examples include the Herbst, MARA, Bionator, and Twin Block appliances

TADs

A relatively recent innovation in orthodontics, TADs (or Temporary Anchorage Devices) are small attachments that are placed into the bone next to the teeth. They allow Dr. Elgin to move the teeth in ways that were previously difficult or impossible.

Surgical Orthodontics

Elgin Orthodontics Coos Bay OregonIn cases of severe jaw size mismatches, or when the patient desires a dramatic change in facial appearance, surgical orthodontics may be the best option. Here, Dr. Elgin works closely with an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon to coordinate the orthodontic tooth movement with a jaw surgery.

"Dr. Elgin Even Called Me..."

"Daughter has been going here for a couple years. Dr. Stephenson was great. Had to rig up an unusual way to pull her 7-year molar from the roots of the tooth in front of it. Space maintainers held everything in place. Yesterday she received her braces from Dr. Elgin. Awesome job from him and his staff. They are so caring. My daughter is super shy and gets really timid when she's nervous. "By the end of it all, she was smiling and talking to everyone. Dr. Elgin even called me last night to make sure she was doing ok and to see if we had any questions or concerns. Top notch service and quality. Would rate them a million stars if I could. My son will be going here if he needs braces too." -K. Nordquist (via Facebook)
