Braces are fairly common these days, and while many people associate orthodontics with cosmetic dental work it is actually implemented in order to promote better overall dental health. When it comes to orthodontics in Fresno, our orthodontist will be sure to implement whatever method will work best to meet your medical needs but will also take your cosmetic concerns into consideration. We offer a variety of options when it comes to braces here at Mark Lowe Orthodontics and an orthodontic evaluation is a great way to find out which method will work the best for you.
When people think of braces they often imagine teenagers wearing the devices involved in the procedure, but braces can be prescribed to both children and adults as well. Here at Mark Lowe Orthodontics we can provide children with intercept orthodontics if they begin to show signs of a malocclusion or other serious bite problem early on. Some serious issues may only get worse with time, so action may need to be taken as early on as possible. When it comes to braces for kids, braces are often administered while they are young as well as when they get older and all of their permanent teeth come in. For the most part, though, braces are most commonly prescribed to teenagers because they have all of their permanent teeth but they are still growing so treatment can go more smoothly. Braces can be prescribed to adults as well, and we here at Mark Lowe Orthodontics offer braces for older patients if they want them. But because adults are no longer growing and their teeth cannot be guided, they may require more intensive work and the procedure may take a bit longer, but the end results are the same.
