As such, ‘Alternative Orthodontics Treatment’, can be taken at any age be it 40 years, 50 years or even 60 years. 

However, the best age to start the orthodontic (braces) treatment is between the age of 8 to 10 years. It is always a good idea to start early as we can use your child’s natural growth as our important partner in our treatment.  

By the time your child turns 12, 90% of the upper jaw (maxilla) growth has occurred. As the age advances, the amount of complexities and treatment challenges increases.

Hence, sooner the better!

Fixed braces are using mechanical approach just to straighten the teeth.

In contrast, in Alternative Orthodontics, we use a more ‘Wholistic approach’- that means we aim to establish a harmony between the teeth, occlusion (bite) and the whole person.

Rather than having a narrow focus on looks, we strive to establish function, full body balance & natural beauty. 

We can avoid future problems like neck pain, back pain, knee pain, snoring, obstructive sleep apnea etc.
