Our Treatment Process
Here at Jacobus Orthodontics we know that every patient is different. That’s why we offer a wide variety of treatment options to give patients in, and around, Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce, the best possible orthodontic care. Our treatment options include traditional metal braces, translucent braces, and clear aligners. Regardless of the specific techniques we use, we always work to minimize discomfort and develop a schedule that works for you!
We follow the American Association of Orthodontists’ recommendation that children receive their first orthodontic screening by the age 7. Early intervention allows us to monitor for potential problems and correct issues before they become more serious.
During your child’s initial evaluation, we will determine if there are any problems, like crowding or an overbite. We may recommend immediate treatment, no treatment, or decide to wait and monitor changes before moving forward with a treatment plan.
Early orthodontic treatment could include removable or fixed appliances aimed to reduce crowding, create facial symmetry, or correcting other issues. Early treatment often leads to reduced treatment time later in life!
We’re happy to treat adults as well as children! Orthodontic treatment can improve the health of your teeth and gums AND create a smile you love.
Orthodontic treatment continues to improve, and we use a variety of techniques and appliances to reduce discomfort, decrease the frequency of visits, and shorten treatment time!
