People with crowded or crooked teeth are said to have a “bad bite.”

The teeth may look straight but the upper and lower teeth may not fit properly. It is harder to clean crooked teeth, and this could lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.

Orthodontic treatment straightens the teeth and creates a “good bite” where the upper and lower teeth fit properly. It is easier to clean, chew and speak with a good bite.



Both children and adults can undergo Orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic treatment can be started as early as age 8. Recently many adults are opting to undergo Orthodontic treatment at age 50 + too. Important criteria for Orthodontic treatment is a viable healthy bone for tooth movement.

The orthodontist will select the type of appliance based on the patient’s age and treatment needs. Braces are available for patients of all ages.

Children Orthodontics: (Kids Braces)

Treatment that begins while a child is growing helps produce the best results. Most treatment begins when patients are between 8 and 14. During the early developmental growth of jaw bone, the teeth size can be measured through diagnostic radiographs. By this measurement, the anticipated space for the permanent teeth can be precisely planned.

Also, it is possible to guide the teeth and modify jaw alignment for good stability. Over the years research has shown that early Orthodontic treatment started during “growth spurts” has a more predictable outcome in teeth alignment.

Adult Orthodontics: (Adult Braces)

Adults can undergo Orthodontic treatment too. There is no age limit for on when the Orthodontic treatment(Adult braces) can be started. Teeth can be moved at any age. The Orthodontic process involved in moving teeth is the same for all ages.
It’s never too late to create a “good bite” and a beautiful smile. Also, modern Orthodontic technology has reduced treatment time to 18-24 months. Important benefits of Orthodontic treatment is the ability to brush and clean teeth easily. This will prevent gum disease which is the foremost dental condition for tooth loss in older population.

Surgical Orthodontics:

In some complex cases, the upper and lower jaw stick out causing uneven bites. Surgery might be needed to align the upper and lower jaws.


There are different types of Orthodontic braces to correct a bad bite.

  • Metal Braces: Metal braces are made up of sturdy stainless steel. In the type of metal braces we use, the brackets are smaller and easy to clean.
  • Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are made up of ceramic material. The brackets are translucent and blends with the natural tooth color. They are strong and resist stain and discoloration throughout the treatment.
  • Damon Braces: We are Bangalore’s leading practitioners in the application of Damon braces. Damon braces utilize a unique, self-ligation, low friction mechanism, that is ideal for moving teeth comfortably into a better bite. What makes Damon system different? Read More
  • Invisalign (Invisible/ Clear Aligners): The great news is that the field of orthodontics has come a long way over the past few decades. Thanks to Invisalign (the most popular US brand), it is now possible to use near-invisible removable aligners or invisible braces instead of fixed braces to straighten teeth.
