TMJ TMD San Francisco - Start Quote I've been coming here for about three years and they are fantastic! Very thorough and holistic intake that they update every visit. Everyone who works there is really nice and helpful and scheduling is always easy. They also offer complimentary teeth cleaning to regular clients on occasion. I'm not a huge fan of going to the dentist but this is about as painless as going to the dentist can be. Highly recommended. TMJ TMD San Francisco - End quote

Advanced technologies for outstanding care

Our office is equipped with proven technologies for improved comfort and diagnostic evaluation. We capture data using digital radiography, which emits far less radiation than traditional x-ray imaging. Digital imaging is not only safer but also more detailed, providing your dentist with a view of your entire oral structure, including the jawbone, nerve bundles, and the sinus cavity. With digital imaging, we can also evaluate the joints of the jaw, called the TMJs, as well as structures within the head and neck.

Laser has improved how we treat gum disease. Using the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, known as LANAP®, your dentist can safely and effectively target diseased tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact. LANAP® was the first laser procedure to gain FDA approval for the treatment of periodontitis.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
