Orthodontics is a speciality in dentistry dedicated mainly to move the teeth through the bone. The objectives of orthodontic treatment according to Jackson's triad are structural balance, functional efficiency, and aesthetic harmony. Nature has always contributed a good source of foods and ingredients that are beneficial to human health. The present review thus places an interest in enumerating the methodical evidence on naturally present compounds extracted from potent traditional herbs, which are known to possess anti-inflammatory and enhance bone remodeling activity which are the crucial parameter to be kept under control during orthodontic treatment and the novel extracts are enumerated.
