Structural Orthodontic Treatment

Many people consider orthodontic treatment an aesthetic treatment, and it certainly does deliver visible benefits. However, the possibilities of orthodontic care extend far beyond the aesthetic. Using Invisalign, our Novato dentists can improve how your smile functions and fits together.

Common Applications

For example, Invisalign can be used to correct a number of commonly experienced bite problems, like overbites, underbites, and crossbites. This type of treatment improves temporomandibular joint functioning, and helps to protect your teeth from premature attrition (enamel thinning). Also, generally speaking, it is easy to thoroughly clean and care for a straight and seamless smile.


Before treatment begins our dental team will ensure that your smile is healthy enough to undergo orthodontic care. If you have any lingering oral health issues or infections, we may recommend that these are treated prior to orthodontic care. Additionally, if you want to achieve an aesthetic result in a short period of time, we may suggest cosmetic treatments as alternatives to Invisalign.

Optimizing your smile can make a huge difference in how you feel and how your smile ages over time. To learn more, or to schedule a personal consultation with our Novato Invisalign dentists, just give our office a call!
