***COVID-19 / Coronavirus Update***
To Our Valued Patients at Robinson Orthodontics,
On the evening of March 18, 2020, Governor Kate Brown announced a temporary Order/Mandate requiring all Oregon hospitals, outpatient clinics, and health care providers, (including veterinarians, dentists and orthodontists) to immediately cease performing all non-emergency procedures. We do not yet know how long this order will remain in effect, but we will update this notice and contact our patients directly once the restrictive order has been removed by the governor.
In compliance with this temporary order, Robinson Orthodontics will only be able to see patients who are experieng an orthodontic emergency. This includes:
•  Orthodontic-related pain that cannot be comforted with wax or over-the-counter pain relievers, Clipping or adjustment of an orthodontic wire or appliance that is piercing or ulcerating the mucosa.
•  Trauma to the mouth and/or braces that requires urgent attention.
•  Any orthodontic occurrence/situation that you feel could lead to a significant negative outcome if left untreated.
If you are uncertain whether or not your situation is an orthodontic emergency, please contact me directly at (541) 295-0667. I have received guidance from the Oregon Board of Dentistry to evaluate each patient on a case-by-case basis for emergency care, and I will make certain that you are cared for appropriately.
Our team at Robinson Orthodontics will proactively be reaching out to our patients who have scheduled appointments and assist them with rescheduling at a future date.
This is a challenging time for everyone in our community and throughout our country and the world. We appreciate your understanding and are grateful for your support and cooperation. Please stay healthy and safe!
Sincerely,
Dr. Jon N. Robinson, DM

All About Braces
Grants Pass, OR


man with metal braces at Robinson Orthodontics in Grants Pass, ORYou might think that you know a lot about braces, but there are probably some things that you do not know. Here at Robinson Orthodontics, we want to make sure that you know what you need to to make a well-informed decision about your braces. We also want to make sure that you know how to properly care for your braces.

Know More About Braces


It is important to know as much as possible about your braces. Here are a few pieces of information that you might find helpful.

It is not just teenagers who end up wearing braces. Children as young as six might need them to correct a jaw problem. It is also common for an adult to wear braces to correct an issue that was not fixed by braces when younger.

Metal braces are the most common type of braces. These are applied to your teeth in our office, and they will stay on your teeth until we remove them.

It is important to brush your teeth immediately after you eat if you have traditional metal braces. This will prevent plaque from forming. Do not think that you can brush later. Carry a toothbrush with you so that nothing will stay stuck in your braces. Your friends will understand.

There will be some discomfort for a couple of days after you receive traditional metal braces. This is nothing to be concerned about. We will supply you with orthodontic wax, which will help the issue.

Do not be surprised if your teeth feel loose not long after you receive the braces. This is a common issue. Your teeth need to loosen up a little bit so that they will be able to move to their new spot in your jaw.

If you play sports, we need to know about it. This is because we will want to fit you with a custom-made mouthguard. The mouthguard will be made to fit your mouth and protect your teeth and your braces. Make sure that you use it.

There will be some types of foods that you will want to stay away from while you have your braces. Stick to soft foods if your mouth is sore for the first few days. After that, skip foods that are sticky or that are too hard when you bite down on them. You will also need to stay away from gum.

There are other choices besides traditional metal braces. You could be a good candidate for Damon braces, Invisalign®, or ceramic braces. We will discuss your options with you in our office.

With traditional braces, most people will wear them for about two years. That may seem like a long time, but it will go quickly. Here at Robinson Orthodontics, we will watch over you during that time to make sure that your braces are doing their job. Call (541) 441-8288 to make an appointment so that we can get started. The time will go quickly, and you will soon have a fantastic smile.
