Kelowna Orthodontic Services - What Align Ortho Offers

Apr 13 / 2018

Align Ortho has been straightening smiles since 1981.

The team at Align takes pride in providing patients and referring offices with the highest level of care and service. So, what do we -- a Kelowna Orthodontic Provider -- provide?

We provide Kelowna with dental alignment using metallic or clear braces, and Invisalign clear aligner therapy for children and adults.  Before stepping into Align Ortho, we wanted to give you a bit of information on each of the options we provide.

Kelowna Orthodontic Services

Let’s start at the beginning. At Align Ortho, we provide early treatment. It’s the best time for us to take a look at a child’s oral health. An initial evaluation should occur at the first sign of Orthodontic problems or no later than seven.

We use early treatment and children’s braces to evaluate (and possibly expand) the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions, reduce the likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correct thumb-sucking, and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems. It also minimizes issues in adulthood with proper care early on.

The next option is braces for Kelowna residents. As a Kelowna Orthodontic provider, we have two braces options.

Metal braces are the most common type of dental brace that is used at Align Ortho. They are made of medical grade stainless steel to be biocompatible, and they are small, comfortable and look super cool.


Many patients prefer our metal braces because there’s the option to choose many different colours of elastics that wrap around the braces. You could pick your favourite colours, your school colours or favourite team colours.

The second option is clear braces.


Clear dental braces are made from a translucent ceramic material and are practically invisible. They work the same way as the mental braces we just mentioned above and are most popular with our adult patients. They’re so discreet that most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing them!

Other than braces, we provide Invisalign.


If you’re looking to move your teeth without braces, we also offer Invisalign or “invisible braces”. Invisalign uses clear sets of medical grade aligners that are worn in a sequence to gradually shift your teeth into their proper positions.

Invisalign also has a teen version, which is the same product with some special feature to ensure that they are worn frequently enough, along with a replacement program for misplaced aligners.
